Blue Mountain, 15Feb2013

Another sunny and mild winter’s day in the Olympics. Isaac Sun, Paul Dutky and I enjoy a nice hike/snowshoe up Blue Mountain (6007 ft) on the North Olympic Peninsula above Sequim WA. It’s been a light snow year so far so the entire lower half of the trail was dry. Blue Mountain is the closest big peak to the Strait of Juan De Fuca, with sweeping uninterrupted views of Sequim, Port Angeles and the North Olympic Peninsula.

Mount Angeles, 01 Feb 2013

Isaac Sun, Paul Dutky and I enjoyed a calm, mild and sunny snowshoe up Mount Angeles (6454 ft) from Hurricane Ridge visitor center. Mount Angeles is one of the easiest 6000 ft peaks in the Olympics to access as Hurricane Ridge Road is plowed and open on weekends. The hike is mostly a scenic airy ridge line with minimal avalanche hazard. While there is some up and down along the ridge, it’s still a manageable day hike with great views from the summit.
