Clear & Sunsets  Sucess!

Late afternoon hike. The sunset was blood red and the views were amazing. Always a great hike for those who need a dose of life again.

Pilchuck  Sucess!

Clear skies, no wind, and starting at first light made this an incredible and nearly solitary hike.

Best Backdoor Hike  Sucess!

Climbed Pilchuck many times, it's my go-to hike when I get a mountain craving but don't have time to plan or research a new one. Not a good hike if you are seeking solitude. It's a highway of people most days. Good if it's your first solo hike! Impossible to get lost with the never ending stream of people and pets.

Pilchuck  Sucess!

I've climbed Pilchuck lots of times, starting from a sixth grade field trip. I've seen the wonderful views from the top and also been up there with about 30ft visibility from fog. Sometimes in the snow and sometimes on rock. It's is a great training hike with rewarding views on nice days.

Snow Runnin'  Sucess!

I drastically underestimated the amount of snow that would be on the mountain and figured I could just run up and back. A little bit of frostbite on the ankles was my punishment, regardless, it was a helluva fun run/climb and a slide-on-my-butt back down. Gorgeous views of the North Cascades.

Where  Sucess!

I remember a freshman college outing I partook in. I'm pretty sure this was what we 'climbed' though I was distracted by some girl named Julie during most of the adventure... no wait, it was this peak. We started chanting: How many pills could a Pilchuck chuck if a pilchuck could chuck pills! Dumb kids we were.

PB&Js on Pilchuck with Pops  Sucess!

Took my father up this one to escape the city. The weather looked unpredictable, so we got an early start on the trail (7AM) and were second to the lookout. Bouldered and explored around the summit, soaking in the 360 degree late summer views. On the descent, the clouds rolled in just as the majority of the hikers came up...

Nice hike  Sucess!

Nice hike up in the snow and ice. Lookout was open and provided a nice place for lunch. No views due to cloud cover.

Sooo busy even on weekdays!

Beautiful day marred  Sucess!

Gorgeous day with fog in the forest, clear above tree line looking down on a sea of clouds, then it all cleared up. But a kid fell off the top just before we got there, somehow survived, and we watched the heli rescue.

Always good  Sucess!

Great one to take the kids up.

My first "climb"  Sucess!

The one that started it all, at the tender age of eight.

Spring Snow on Pilchuck  Sucess!

Had to walk the last mile or so of the road to the trailhead on snowshoes. Between the mist and the snowpack we didn't exactly end up anywhere near the trail but made it to the hut regardless.
