8:00 AM at 65th Street Park n Ride
Exploratory hike on the 4th of July. Last group of mountaineers made it 2/3 of the way about 2 weeks ago due to the snow. It has been and will be warm, so lets see how far we can get. You'll be home in time for the fireworks. Bring your trekking poles for balance and your camera for the memories. So if you like the spring snow hikes..... This is it! Park n Ride DIRECTIONS: To get to the Park n Ride from the south, take I-5 North toward Everett. Get off at exit 170, and turn left at the stop sign at the end of the ramp. You will be heading North to the P&R;’s which are under I-5. Park at the South end of the North lot. It’s across from a coffee shop and Shell gas station. I have a blue Chevy S-10 pickup truck with a blue cap on the back. Time from downtown Seattle would be about 10 minutes or less. From the North, take I-5 and exit at 171. Bear left, cross over I-5 and turn right the first chance you get to proceed down below I-5 to the lot on your right.======= WTA TRIP REPORT: Jun 26, 2007 by Craig Romano Mount Pilchuck #700 The Glacier Peak Area | Link to this report Made it to the Pilchuck Lookout today-haven't been there since 1989! The views are tremendous just as I remembered. This is a great hike but it definitely is not an easy one this time of year. Solid snow from 4,200 feet to the summit. Snow was soft today-but if it freezes up, you've got some tough spot to deal with. An ill-prepared hiker was taken out by Search and Rescue this evening. This mountain has seen plenty. I passed two school groups-sneakers-no poles, packs- what the heck are the leaders thinking? Well one of thier numbers got hurt today. Anyhow-take poles or axe-it'll be snowy on this peak until mid-July this year. The black flies are out in full force right now too!=============== If we don't get all the way up, or too many feel challenged by the snow, we could hike Lake 22 as it is close by! Joe Fortin
