On the Keep Cool trail

Filed under: Hiking, North Cascades — geezerwriter @ 12:34 pm

I had to try a post from the wilderness. Here we are near the Tarns below Yellow Aster Butte.



Update – later that evening

This was my first, and very possibly last, post from the wilderness on my new iPhone. I just did it because I can.  It is possible to post from here because this spot has a clear, direct view of the Mt. Baker Ski Area, which is equipped with a cell tower.

As I discussed in a previous post, I did not purchase a fancy coverage contract from AT&T but rather am buying coverage on a month-by-month or actually minute-by-minute basis from H2O Wireless. Watching my pennies, for the picture above I chose to upload the smallest version without thinking how small 300×200 pixels is. So here is a larger version so that you can see the lovely, smiling(?!) faces.

As usual, you can click the image to make it even LARGER!

P.S. That is Yellow Aster Butte in the background.


  1. Well, the picture is too small to tell who anybody is! But it was a nice first (FIRST) try, Al. 🙂

  2. Is this the geezerhiker that hiked Rocky Creek east of Rockport? If so did you hike west side of creek or east side? If west side you followed trail made by all us kids 35 years ago when my grandmother lived at the base of that hill next to creek. she passed away in 1995 and the Forest Service took back the land. THe trail you are looking for is on the east side……still hard to follow. It used to be a Boy scout trail in the 1940s-1950s. Connected to Cow Heaven and Helen Buttes

    • No, that’s not me, but that sounds like a interesting place to explore. Any more information you could give would be very welcome. I hike with a groups of other seniors and we’re always looking for more hikes.
