Beginning with Old Robe Canyon and ending with the Hoapili Trail in Maui. There are 19 in total, most of which are in the Central Cascades.This year includes some photos of us walking on a frozen Mason Lake.
Many hikes in the Cascades this year, ending on the Pacific Crest Trail in deep snow. Included are some beautiful photos from Snowy Lakes, near Leavenworth, as well as my first ascent of Mt Dickerman.
Mt Pugh, Del Campo, Gothic Basin, and so many other great hikes. There are 28 in total. This was definitely a year during which I became really ambitious and summitted Mt Pilchuck and stumbled upon two rock climbers while hiking Gothic Basin who helped me summit Del Campo.
This season has been a bit delayed due to late, heavy snow accumulation, but I will endeavor to make up for lost time.
Trail runs, mostly in the North Bend area. These start modestly but 2020 was my first successful run to Rainy Lake, which is an incredibly ambitious trail run.
Trail runs near Seattle, off of I-90 and in North Bend. I think my favorite was the winter run to Thompson Lake, though the run to Pratt Lake was awesome too. I had my first black bear encounter in 2021.
More trail runs, most of them under fairly adversarial conditions, given how much snow fell both in winter and into May. So far I'm pretty disappointed but I hope to do some interesting ones (and complete them) this summer and into the fall.
This year is off to a decent start, with a run on Jan 1st. I'm pleasantly surprised that I can even find a place to run (North Bend is only partially buried under snow, which is helping).
