"4 Star" surf at Westport - Oct. 27
Now that Old Man Winter has finally regrouped and appears poised to resume a more winter-like pattern of cold weather and mountain snow, I thought I might leave you with a couple parting shots of a relatively balmy day on the coast. The surf at Westport can be so hit-or-miss sometimes, but with a 6-foot swell, 13-second period and light offshore breeze (according to MagicSeaweed), near-perfect surf conditions seemed guaranteed. The forecast was spot on...if only it was like this all the time!

Kaleetan Peak - East Face, October 19
A bit late and not much to report here other than it was to be another fair October weekend and Agata and I could come up with nothing better than a casual hike up to Lake Melakwa. Made a quick dash to Kaleetan's summit and took some nice snapshots of the surrounding Alpine Lakes Wilderness. I think Kaleetan was my first summit since moving to the Seattle area in 1998.
