In January 2015, a simple visit to Goldmyer Hot Springs turned into quite the 24-hour adventure when I was trapped with two friends by one of the largest floods Snoqualmie Valley has seen since 2009. Mother Nature is mighty awesome.
After 12 years I finally checked the mail again, successfully scrambled to Dirtybox AND narrowly avoided a lightning storm on the summit, I'd say that's a win!
My friend Annette and I have a track record of adventurous outings that never end up ordinary. With our crazy 3 dogs in tow we set out for Mt. Clifty, deep in the Cle Elum Ranger District to bag a peak for Sahaptin Outfitter's "Summit the District" contest. We had no idea it would turn into a 20-mile, all day outing!
