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.

Gracie Point, WA - north of Selah.

Summit: 
W7W/CW-096

Today I dragged my Dad, my kids and their cousins up to Gracie Point summit.

I had read another activator who took the southern approach, listed as 5 or so miles one way and a rather steep hike.  I figured that was a bit much for my crew so we went around back to the northern approach.  Starting on S Wenas Rd turning onto Sheep Company Road.  Discovery Pass is required.

Turns out with an Expedition (or other 4WD vehicle) you can drive/bounce slowly all the way to the summit.

We passed a pair of does and a 4-5pt buck.

Bunchgrass Mountain, OR | June 2021

Summit: 
W7O/CM-087

Bunchgrass Mountain is a bushwhack through meadows of bear grass (presumably its namesake), and trees and brush up higher. It eventually reaches an unavoidable steep push to the AZ, which rewards you with impressive nearly panoramic views of Wolf Rock, Latiwi Mountain, and others to the east. This is across the road from Wildcat W7O/CM-082, and across the highway from Iron Mountain, so they make a good pair or trio if you have the time.

Wildcat Mountain, OR | June 2021

Summit: 
W7O/CM-082

One of the four Wildcat Mountains in Oregon, this one is a short bushwhack from a Honda-Fit-accessible road, and as it is directly across NF2655 from Bunchgrass Mountain W7O/CM-087, these peaks would make an excellent pair or trio with Iron Mountain. 

On US 20, turn south onto NF15 and follow twists and turns, and several forks, to a sign on the left that says Fritz Wildcat, at 44.3437, -122.1303. Follow this road up to climb the ridge, and park at 44.3296, -122.1014, the saddle. Google has all these roads marked and it can get you there.
