Mount Washington 2/20/2010

Climbed Mount Washington today - it was cold, sunny, and a nice day to be outdoors.  Mt Washington is in the Cascade Mountain Range near Seattle. 

The trail was covered with hard, thick ice - this gave me a chance to try out my new Micro-Spikes; these are metal spikes which are strapped to the soles of my boots.

I shot the pictures below from the top of the mountain where the best views could be had.

There was a great view of the distinctive "Mc Clellan Butte" and another view of the distant, glacier covered "Glacier Peak".

  1. Beautiful pictures again. That Glacier Peak is something else...a one of a kind. It must feel like you're on top of the world except most of the world doesn't look that beautiful and peaceful.

  2. Nice pictures. Glacier peak looks so far away and yet so clear covered completely with snow. You picked a beautiful day to hike.
