Think you've seen it all at Saddle Rock? Have you found Saddle Rock Lake and Little Utah Canyon? Have you circumnavigated the entire parcel on trails? Randy Riggs opened my eyes to new possibilities in an old stomping ground.
The hounds of Number 2 Canyon are crazed -- a silver-dollar moon floats in the night sky and it boils wolf blood veneered by domestication. The wolf within also possesses the minds of several mountain bikers who follow the moon up and over Twin Peaks.
A New Year's Day circuit through the Stemilt Basin, the place where Mission Ridge was almost built 42 years ago, offers the best backcountry skiing of the year. Are we saying the skiing was 'killer' or stating the obvious (on the first day of the year how could the skiing be anything but the year's best)?
It’s early April and only the earliest-blooming wildflowers (yellow bells, biscuitroots, sagebrush buttercups) are emerging in relatively sparse numbers. See what's out there now, and find out how far behind 'average' this year's bloom is.
When time is short and family politics prescribe that you make a showing, a Dawn Patrol up Mission Peak provides the solution for having your skiing and a family too.
KOHO Radio has been running a local Outdoor Report on the radio on Wednesday mornings (and sometimes on Saturdays) over the past year. These are relevant to what's happening in the outdoor world around the region...so we're experimenting with running these podcasts. Tell us what your think.
