6026, CA June 2021

Summit: 
W6/NW-145

This was my first of three in one day in N. CA just west of Yreka in the  Scott Bar Mountains. It was a pleasant area to activate, forested knoll with some large open spaces to set up in and look down to Scott Valley to the SE. It was still early and we were in the clouds a bit so couldn't see the distant mountains such as the Marble Mountains and Shasta too well but probably you can on a clear day, and depending which side of the summit you are on.

Updated - Monte Carlo, WA | June 2021

Summit: 
W7W/MC-061

Even More Updated - A shorter way to Monte Carlo that is only about 1.5 miles RT, even if steep in places. This approach will work so long as DNR road B-1500 is passable all the way to 45.8695° -121.579° (NOTE: we did not go this way). Use most of the directions below, but you will go 6.5 miles from Highway 141 to make a sharp right turn onto B-1500 near 45.8449° -121.573° and go about 2.3 miles on this single lane dirt road. The small portions we could see could be traveled in a passenger vehicle. There's a pullout opposite the unmarked trail.

Mt Mitchell, WA | May 2021

Summit: 
W7W/LC-083

This is a SOTA gem! A landowner blocked access to the original trailhead in 2011, but a new trail has now been established. The new trail has some challenges but is easy to follow, with signs of regular maintenance. The summit offers a wonderful 360-degree panorama view with Mt St Helens looming large just North of the summit.

Little Chinquapin Mountain, OR May 2021

Summit: 
W7O/CS-088

Nice little hike up a unusable road. Only about a 1/2 mi hike from where I parked on the west side where BLM RD 39-4E-17.1 pretty much ends. I enjoyed the short hike and the views driving up. There isn't much view from the top but just as you get at the fringe of the AZ there is a beautiful open view towards Mt. Mcloughlin, Brown, Robinson looking across Howard Prairie. I activated on the SW hump of the summit and wish I would have went to the true high point as I see now on my map it says "ruins". Could just be remnants of an old lookout. Easy set up.

Red Sleep Mountain, Montana. May 21, 2021

Summit: 
W7M/LM-174

Red Sleep Mountain is the highest point in the National Bison Range near Dixon, Montana. The range recently opened back up from being closed last year due to Covid. Just last week, the high loop road was opened which gives you access to the trailhead. An entrance fee of $10 needs to be purchased at the park entrance.

Mt Bachelor, Oregon | Uphill Ski Activation | May 4th, 2021

Summit: 
W7O/CM-005

NOTE: This route is only available during ski operations of Mt Bachelor Resort. The Summit Chair ski lift only runs during winter and spring ski operations. 

Mount Bachelor offers one of the easiest 10-pointers in Oregon, if you want it. It is possible to buy a lift ticket and take the Summit Chair ski lift nearly to the activation zone. It is only a short hike to the summit proper from the top of the lift.
