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.

Sonyok Mountain, Montana - May 16, 2021

Summit: 
W7M/LO-115

Sonyok Mountain is on Tribal Indian land and a use permit is needed to go there. I bought mine at the Mangy Moose in Plains but they are available in most sporting goods outlets. The summit has a working lookout but had not been opened for the season when I was there.

Peak 5179 - ID - May 2021

Summit: 
W7I/BC-091

I started out the day with much enthusiasm.  This was a yet to be activated summit which made it a tad more exciting.  I knew it would be an easy trip to the top, having ridden my mountain bike to within a quarter of a mile from the summit last year.  All the gear (well, almost all the gear) was packed up the night before with a total weight of about 13 pounds, including bike repair items just in case.

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.
