Mount Walker 5/8/2010
Today a climbing friend and I hiked up to the summit of Mount Walker - this was a "training" hike which provided a great view of the Puget Sound when we reached the mountain top.
Why a training hike? Well, we donned much larger and heavier backpacks (mine had lead weights inside) as we hiked up the relatively steep slopes of Mt Walker to prepare for our Mount Rainier summit attempt at the end of this month.
Here are two nice pictures I shot from the top of Mt Walker.
