Pilchuck 2/16

Postby EBSTEVE » Mon Feb 16, 2015 11:00 am

Well I had the day off so I decided to take the trusty dog Dexter and hike up to the lookout, zero real snow.
I have been nursing a few leg problems.... so I packed at 25 pounds and it was just shy of 3hrs round trip (all things considered I was happy with that).
I was shocked that at 6am there were 6 cars in the lot (5 overnighters and 1 ahead of me), when I got down around 9:15 there was well over 25 cars. It is Presidents day but it's still a Monday in Feb.
The trail was great with a few spots of ice that were easy to negotiate around and 3 or 4 spots, a few hundred yards long of compact snow.
I took 8 pictures, made a panorama out of 6 of them, the dog is the only other one that turned out.

Dexter a few hundred feet from the lookout, I did not want him to follow me up.

Wow... What a pathetic snow year. Did you take any other pictures of the area around the lookout? Is there any snow on the north slope?

Unfortunately Dexter was not happy about me going up and leaving him, so with him whining I literarily spent less than a minuet at the lookout. Here is a picture of the rocks to the ladder and one of the pictures from the panorama shows the lack of snow on the backside of the lookout.
That is all I have.... I am not the photographer that I should be.
