10 My father wrote hiking guidebooks including the first one on mountaineering medicine so I was well trained.
most difficult: Boulder Butte (near Stehekin) 6200 feet of gain with a full backpack second most difficult: Robin Lakes - boot path to lakes is hard on older knees favorite: too many to list in 51 years of hiking
I organize a hiking group so I mostly do my planning with that group.
I have been an outdoor enthusiast my whole life. It's nice to have a variety of spots to find people who share those hobbies.
