      Hi Gerard, Githens Peak is the wooded snowy area in the photos. It is SW of Mt. Hood about 10-15 miles. Access Githens through Estacada. We definitely got wet. Even the expensive rain gear didn’t hold out the wetness. The radios seemed to do fine. Yaesu makes a tough radio (FT-300).
      Mt. Hood, as seen from Wildcat 2 days prior, shown in the round pic (taken through binoculars). Wildcat Mountain was warm and dry! It’s about 5 miles or less from Githens toward Mt. Hood. Access through Rhododendron or the Eagle Creek side.

  1. Great pictures Phil. Sure looks like fun. I’m a little jealous and very sad that I can’t get away from the truck and see some of these places.
    I have my HF rig working well now so be sure to announce, post and text where you are headed next.
    Thanks again for sending these in.
