Nice blog, I added it to my read list. We generally plan to do east Washington and the North Cascades then drop down thru OR into the evil empire for a revisit of Lassen. Last time we were there it was mostly snowed in.

I doubt we will be in shape to do multi thousand foot altitude gain hikes tho, being from the flatlands.

Much of central Washington was formed by the Montana Glacier. This includes Dry Falls (Must see) which was something like seven times the size of Niagra. It changed the course of the Columbia River.


Are you refering to the repeated floods from Lake Missoula?

Most people tour around Washington for awhile visiting places there have heard about like the Olympic Peninsula and Mt Rainier. Then it occurs to a lot of them maybe they would like to get out of the rain and they head for the eastern Cascades.

ppine, the east side sure is pretty. But when we were there in July a few years ago, it was really hot -- too hot for hiking! So I guess it's "pick your poison:" cool and rainy, or hot and dry.

Cool and dry would be the best, but it's not easy to find in mid-summer. [emoticon]

If the weather is hot and dry just gain some elevation.

A member PMed me asking if the blue color of the ice in my photo above is real or is a result of photo editing. It is real! Depending on the sun angle and the color of the sky, parts of the glaciers are, well, ice-blue. The picture does not do it justice. Tip -- if you want to see it up close, bring binoculars! (Too dangerous to hike on a glacier.)

And to answer two other questions, yes, that is Mt. Baker, and yes, that is me and DW sitting next to the lupines.

Another place that I liked in WA and is worth seeing was Leavenworth, it is a recreation of an old German town.

I patrolled the Deception Pass area, make reservations if you plan on stay a few days, way ahead of travel date. I also patrolled San Juan Island in the San Juan Islands. Walking on the ferry is not an issue, taking vehicle can mean a long wait to catch a ferry which ran every 2 hours when I left the area. There is housing in the San Juan Islands, Lopez, Shaw, Orcas, and San Juan. Again reservations if you plan to stay.
