Well it is July and it is time to visit the beautiful Olympics. Let's head up to the high country and go for Obstruction Point and Elk Mountain. So who is game on this stunning hike. Expect about 9 miles roundtrip and 2000 feet of gain of mostly stunning scenery!!! Rating 3: Hike between 5-12 miles and up to 3500 feet of elevation gain. Hike could require low level scrambling up to Class 2. An example of this kind of hike would be the true summit of Rattlesnake Mountain, East Tiger Mountain (low end), The Margaret Way trail to the Squak Mountain, Mount Washington and Mount Si without the Haystack scramble. Anyone can sign up for these hikes provided they have the items that are needed for the trip. Attendance will be taken at every event and like most other major groups we will have a two no-shows and you are out of the group policy. You will be responsible for your own safety. Every Organizer and Event Planners are volunteers and are not professional guides.
One of the lessons I learned last weekend is, keep your first aid skill fresh! There's a free workshop on Stop Bleeding at EvergreenHealth hospital this Thursday. Though it is not for wilderness specifically, it doesn't hurt to brush up general first aid skills. Please call the phone number below to register if you want to sign up.

Let's spend a weekend in the Boston Basin area, We'll Hike in Saturday morning and set a base camp near the top of the Queen Sabe, likely at the Col between Boston and Sahale if the weather is nice. From there we can climb some or all of the peaks over the next few days as conditions allow. Descent is via Boston basin or Sahale Glacier depending on if we summit Sahale or not.
