July 8, 2014: Sunrise Peak & Jumbo Peak (Dark Divide, Washington)

The Dark Divide is a big swath of land in Gifford Pinchot National Forest that no one seems to know about. It's between Mt. Adams and Mt. St. Helens, but north of Indian Heaven (map). It's a roadless area, but not a designated wilderness, so people are allowed to ride motorbikes there; hikers looking for peace and quiet might want to avoid it on weekends.

The last 15 photos on this page are from a post-hike side trip to the waterfalls on the Lewis River.
