2016 favorite outings

It has been a bit of a lazy winter thus far and I'm finally getting some motivation to start thinking about where I'd like to try and go this year. Below are some of my favorite trips and places from 2016. A big thank you to all my friends and partners for these great outings and memories!

January snowshoe to Slide Mountain, Mt. Rainier National Park
March snowshoe to Stormy Mountain, Chelan Range
Spring in the Teanaway Range, Three Brothers and Navajo Peak, Alpine Lakes Wilderness
Big group of friends, Big Jim Mountain, Alpine Lakes Wilderness
Bear Skull Mountain, Pasayten Wilderness
Running the Chelan-Sawtooth Traverse, Lake Chelan-Sawtooth Wilderness
Early summer in the Pasayten: Sheep Mountain, Pasayten Wilderness
Finally got to do the Carne-Leroy route with Mt. Maude, Glacier Peak Wilderness
Elysian Fields, Mt. Rainier National Park
Hard to beat the view from Easy Peak, North Cascades National Park
Snowking Mountain feels like a quintessential North Cascades hike-scramble, Glacier Peak Wilderness
Ben and I returned to finish the Highland Ridge Traverse, Great Basin National Park, Nevada
And we also swung by the Wallowa Mountains, Eagle Cap Wilderness, Oregon 
Squeezing in one last late-fall trip sans snowshoes, American Ridge, William O. Douglas Wilderness


  1. I'm looking forward to your next adventures! I was almost getting concerned ;).

    1. Ha! Thanks Martin; I've just been lazy and had some mandated medical rest (this is the time of year to do those things!). Hope you and fam are well.

  2. Still a mighty fine looking year, despite any "epic" trips a la Glacier Peak. Looking forward to some more good outings in 2017!
