What kind of rock is it made of? Granite?
Thanks for the vote!
It's an ancient volcano so it's basalt. The south side in particular has been eroded by the Missoula floods and it's columnar basalt core, (similar to Beacon Rock) is exposed.
On that picture of the trees you write "Douglas Fir." Since it is not a true fir you need to write it this way: "Douglas-fir." Anytime you see it unhyphenated it is wrong.
Edits made. Thanks for the info.
THis is a fun little peak. Have been up there twice and always makes for a nice, quick way to get the heart rate up :)
Thanks for the vote. I agree - great for a shot pick-me-up!
I think this one is listed in the red Sullivan book at the end ("additional hikes" section).
looking thru. your Gorge peak pages makes wanna get outside...real nice stuff!!
I suppose Mt. Hood is not visible at all from the summit?
Nice page. I had given the info out about this hike on my Dog Mountain page and now I can provide a link to your page. Thanks!
Hi Brian - Thanks for the vote and compliment. Yes, I see now that you have a good description for Wind Mt. on your page. I should link back to yours - it's got more info!
Thank you, I appreciate the vote.
Nice work yet again... never answered your que. before about when I was coming to Washinton b/c the time had already come and gone... I ended up playing in the Enchantment peaks area fro four days around ingalls Peak and Mt. Stuart. An incredible area.
Thanks for the vote and the compliment.
Glad you enjoyed your trip out west - you picked a great place to see, too. -The Mt. stuart area is fantastic, even by NW standards.
Nice page, well written and complete. Thanks for posting it!
Thanks for the vote and the compliment - (also , thanks for noting the error) :-)
Good page with interesting information. I wonder what it would be like in times of a storm blowing from the west...
