Columbia Mountain


On Saturday I hiked the Columbia Mountain loop, north of Sherman Pass in northeast Washington. A classic Inland Northwest hike, this loop features one of my favorite sections of trail, where the route traverses a steep slope where sagebrush and subalpine fir mingle amidst giant granite slabs. I was hoping to take some photos of the sagebrush at sunset, but late in the afternoon fast-moving fog enveloped the mountain, reducing visibility to about 100 feet. I took this shot instead, which I feel is a great substitute.
