This book contains images of many of the mountains and views that are available to be climbed in Washington State. Washington’s mountains have been used for many years as a training ground for major international mountain climbing expeditions. The very first Americans to climb Mount Everest trained on the mountains of Washington State. Many of these scenes have never been seen by the casual hiker or climber, merely because they cover such a large geographic area of the state and are otherwise very remote.
Author Bio: Donald R. Tjossem completed both the basic and intermediate climbing programs of the Seattle Mountaineers while he was a climbing instructor and climb leader. While living in Bellingham, he was the chairman of the Bellingham Mountain Rescue Council. He climbed the six major peaks of Washington State when Mount St. Helens was still included as one of them. These images were taken on his many trips with the Mountaineers and on rescue practices with Bellingham Mountain Rescue. He has been a resident of the state of Washington for over 60 years.ISBN: 9781467132992
