I have hiked the north side of the mountain many times now that I have been here several years. One thing I have not done is hike the south side. I often see the south side while hiking in Oregon assuming I have enough elevation and the sky is clear enough. I wanted to see it for myself so I research on the Washington Trail Association website a good hike and Butte Camp was listed. A solid hike. Long enough and a steady challenge with some amazingly wide panoramic views of Oregon.
Was babysitting the fur babies in Vancouver and one of those days I decided to do a hike. Tracy had told me about Silver Star Trail and the Grouse Vista Trail which is easier to get to via car. This trail head is definitely deep in the woods. The hike itself is pretty damn good especially on the way down when the fog lifted. Crazy to see snow on the last day of spring.
A quick afternoon of wheeling in the Gifford Pinchot National Forest. Didn’t do much hiking but we where able to see the tops of Mount St. Helens, Mount Baker, and Mount Adams which was really cool.
