Mount Washington


Signs for MT WA and Great Wall trails.

Mount Washington
Distance: 8.5 miles
Elevation Gain: 3250 Feet
Date: July 10, 2014
Hikers: Groucho & Diamond D
Duration: 4.75 hours

Groucho sez –

Diamond D and I were looking for something close and a bit more rigorous than our earlier Rattlesnake Ledge hike – I’d not been up Mt Washington, so off we went. The hike was way more laid back than Mt Si – we saw a total of 7 people in almost 5 hours on the mountain – but the views were still great and the trail superbly maintained. I’ll be back to try the Great Wall loop – it wasn’t obvious where the loop came out near the summit, and the trail at the signed junction seemed a bit rough…

Salmon Berries

There were lots of ripening salmon berries – probably an indication that not that many hungry humans passed thru.

Views Southeast

Views of Rainier southeast from just under the summit looking over the Cedar River Watershed.
