In the same vein as the Circumnavigation Project and the Washington Glacier Ski Project, a way of better understanding the mountains that I grew up in was to traverse the entire state of Washington in segments from north to south. This was inspired by Lowell Skoog and his Cascade Crest Traverse (Mount Baker to Mount Rainier) which was completed over the course of 25 years. This was done in remembrance of his brother, Carl Skoog. I finished a variation of his traverse in 2017.
The Washington Traverse is an extension of the Cascade Crest Traverse. It spans the entire mountain crest from the Canadian border to Oregon and the Columbia River.
Over the next year or two, I plan to complete the final portions of this adventure.
