My Hopeful Hike List

This is a list of hikes that I hope to accomplish during my 47 hikes in my 47th year.  Some will be less challenging and others more challenging. Some I will be with other people, while I will hike alone on others. Weather will be an influence for much of the year here in the North Cascades. Some hikes are bound to be hindered by snow most of the year, so I'll have to plan accordingly. I'm not keen on risking my life during any of these hikes! I'm sure my list will be grow and morph during the year, but it's my "dream list" as of today.

At the Monument above Pilchuk Glass Studio, looking out over Mount Vernon and Anacoretes
I welcome any and all hike suggestions. I enjoy a good view, love hiking in the trees, don't mind snow or rain. All I ask is that they not involve crevasses or require an ice ax and crampons and that they be in the Washington. That's the Green Washington, not the Hot Air Washington. That's not too much to ask, is it?
