Mt. Waterman is one of my favorites; a moderate hike of about 6 miles total, 1200 ft or so elevation gain, and very pretty terrain through pines, cedar and boulders. Started at 0620…nice to start in the light and not at dawn for a change!

Welcome new chaser Eric N6HEG!
Chatted with Todd at the ski area (top of Chair 1) They will be opening for mountain biking and “disc (i.e. frisbee) golf” in a couple of weeks. Saw his tabby cat “Squeak”…he told me his other tabby “Pip” had sadly passed away.
As usual, 1 3/4 hours up, 1 hour down.
