Windy Peak

Windy Peak – 8,333ft

We found one of the few dry spots in western Washington on Sunday, up in the northeastern cascades at Windy Peak. This is the only one of the Washington 100 highest mountains with a trail up it, which made it appealing for a day that still had a slight chance of precipitation. After a 6-hour drive we camped at the trailhead Saturday night, then hiked up Sunday morning. The trail started just below snowline, but higher up we were wallowing through 3ft deep snow drifts. We made the summit at 11am in a near white-out, then got safely back to the car a few hours later.
