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.

Glacier peak

On August 4th, Peninsula Wilderness Club members Isaac Sun, Tom Henning and I embarked on a 3-night trip to climb Glacier Peak (10,540 ft) in the Glacier Peak Wilderness of the central Washington Cascades. Our plan was to climb Glacier Peak from the South, using White Pass and Glacier Gap to access the most remote Washington stratovulcano. Our successful trip was blessed with plenty of warm, clear weather with only a brief shower and storm clouds after reaching the summit.

Enchantments, July 2012

On July 19th, Peninsula Wilderness Club members Paul Dutky, Isaac Sun and I enjoyed a wonderful 3-night backpack in the Enchantments, perhaps the most beautiful corner of the Alpine Lakes Wilderness in Washington. We were fortunate to have a permit to camp in the Core Enchantment area, the highest camping zone in the Enchantments. The Core Enchantments is a high alpine garden full of flowers, stately granite spires and island studded lakes.
