Double Header Part 1: Lakeview Peak

Summit: 
W7W/LC-090

With field day coming up next weekend, Taylor and I decided to make up for it with a skillfully executed a double-header activation. First, we went to Lakeview Peak, which is east of Kalama, just southwest of Mt Hood. This summit is on land currently controlled by a private party, but which must remain open to pedestrian traffic. Following the directions, we went as far as we could in the Jeep before reaching a gate. There is ample room there to stash a few vehicles for the hike up the forest road to the summit.

Little Baldy

Summit: 
W7W/SK-168

My Adventures in fitness and SOTA continue!  This was a fun one, spur of the moment decision to do it.  Hours drive to the trail head, hour up, 30 minutes operating, hour down and an hour drive home.  The view from the top was really nice and there was a ledge with a really good drop off as well!

Summit: 
W7O/NC-044

Today JD (K7JDF) and I headed out for an easy 1-point summit: Wildcat Mountain. This summit is on the eastern edge of the Tillamook State Forest and is very accessible from the Portland metro area and provides an excellent operating position at the top as well as a fantastic view.
