Beacon Rock State Park, Washington

Yesterday Carolyn, Theo and I headed over to explore Beacon Rock in her car.  We hiked up the 53 switchbacks to the top of the 848' summit of this monolith.  Henry Biddle back in the early 1900s built a series of easy-grade switchbacks to the top.  A true labor of love…  It was worth it - here's one of the panoramic views on the way up - looking down on the gorge.

Here's a shot of the switchbacks:

I have lots more to report, but the internet connection is S L O W and I'm having to disrupt the lovely quiet with my generator to get this out… so stay tuned, I'll send the rest of the story from Seattle tomorrow...
