Itinerary for 04-18-11

Mostly due to a lack of planning time, on Monday I'm planning on exploring Devil Mountain, with a little dose of tulips touring and maybe a venture into the Lily Lake area of Chuckanut mountain.

Devil Mountain is located just south of Little Mountain. Basically, its the long ridge of points you can see to the east of I-5 between Mount Vernon and Conway exits. Access to the logging roads is available by taking Little Mountain road, turning right onto Amick Rd and then look for the logging road gate.

Might also try to find the 'mine' on the west side of the ridge (as shown on topo maps).

Depending on the weather, the day might start off with a tour of tulip fields for some pictures (without the crowds).

If Devil Mtn goes smoothly and quickly then I'll probably venture up to the Blanchard Mountain access to the Lily and Lizard Lakes trail.

Should be in cell phone range the entire time.

Tuesday looks like it may involve a bike trip to Split Rock and/or Bald Mountain. Possibly in rain and snow.

Wednesday looks like picture perfect weather. If the Avy risk allows, I'll head up to Mt. Baker and see if I can route-find the Heather Meadows Loop route.

Thursday and Friday are still TBD.
