Summer 2009 Hikes and Climbs
I did so much during Summer 2009 that I didn't have time to write trip
reports, although I did take pictures whose captions serve as mini trip reports.
This page organizes them. All were in Washington save the first two which
were in Los Angeles and the second two which were in Oregon.
- Mount Baldy, May 30. My favorite hike in LA; this was my 8th time
to climb it and the 7th by the Baldy Bowl/Devil's Backbone loop. I
went up and down as fast as I could this time: 1:44 up, 0:11 on top,
1:08 down, 3:03 total. Then lunch at Hakata Ramen Shinsengumi.
Mountain, May 31. An "adventure hike" with Jim Ralston in the
Santa Monica Mountains. No captions on the pictures, and my camera was
broken so unfortunately many of them were lost.
- Lassen Peak,
- Crater Lake, June 17. We didn't really hike here. I wanted
to hike to the top of the Watchman but the trail was closed due to snow.
- Mount Hood,
June 18. I started to write a trip report but
didn't have time to write much.
- Beacon Rock, Columbia River Gorge, June 19. Again due to the
broken camera all pictures were lost. We'll have to go back!
- Ape Cave, Mount Saint Helens area, June 19. Almost all pictures
lost. Kyoko, Kyle and I went the length of the lower cave and Kyle and
I did much (but not all) of the upper cave.
