Granite Mountain june 2013
by EraSeek on Jun 04, 2013
Rockdale, Washington, United States
Geocaching | 6.6 miles
I took the suicide route up, straight up gully and ridge. On the way up I loosened a rock and it picked up a couple of others and I watched as they bounced 1000 feet down the way I came, hoping no one was following. Very steep! The summit ridge was quite snowy and a great view as usual. I took the traditional trail down and the narrow snow path made it...

Ancient Lakes again

Quincy, Washington, United States
Geocaching | 3.8 miles
A trip to another part of Ancient Lakes. A shorter trip with exploring, route-finding, and geocaching. I took this trip with LucyandRickie. Most of our adventure here involved trying to find a way across a waterfall and stream to get to another cache, and then finding a small rattle snake guarding the area.

A trip to find Bruce Bjornstad's Potholes Coulee cache. The gates were locked and it was between seasons, so no one was around. I rode my bike in to the trailhead and hiked from there. Another fantastic area!!
