Idaho - Spot Mountain 12June2019


The trail to Spot Mountain is a typical multi-switchback route rising from the steep Selway River Canyon walls to long undulating ridges.  These ridges were used historically by American Indians as routes to bison hunting areas in the eastern plains from the lowlands of the Salmon and Snake river drainages that supported huge runs of salmon and steelhead.

Spectacular peaks of the Selway-Bitterroot Wilderness are in view from this summit.  September visits are rewarded with brilliant yellow to orange needled alpine larch, a deciduous high elevation conifer and many times snowfall.

Beaver Hill 2860, Plain WA


Nice hike in the Lake Wenatchee area near Plain WA.  From US 2 turn onto HY 207 at Coles corner.  Turn right onto HY 207 and follow through Plain WA and continue to the top of the hill  (47.753780, -120.646782) where there is a large parking lot.  The trail head is across the road on the south side of the road.  

The trail is good but steep in places but there are good views along the way.  The hike to the summit is .78 miles.  There is little view at the summit but the area is large enough to erect an EFHW or dipole antenna.

Loser Ridge - Field Day 2020


During the summer you can drive up to the summit of Loser Ridge and there are two ways up. One that requires a great deal of fortitude, 4x4 and a good deal of clearance. The other is the "easy" way that you could get up with a normal vehicle.  Ask me which one I took up ;)

Bare Mountain, WA | June 2020


Bare Mountain is an easy bushwhack up from a decent-quality dirt road. There are several approaches, but this one is by far the easiest - and may have once been a trail to the summit. I recommend GPS, as there is no defined trail and coming down it is hard to follow your own tracks - though if you stay east of the original tracks you will still come out on the road. I could probably make it down NF-311 in a sedan. We walked from the pull-off on NF-311.
