Imagine a view that encompasses the three great volcanoes of southern Washington, with Oregon’s Mount Hood and Mount Jefferson tossed in for good measure, and the jagged line of the Goat Rocks Peaks capping off the panoramic splendor. That’s exactly what’s found at the end of this scenic, if somewhat strenuous, trek up the flank of the Tatoosh Range to a wide saddle between Pinnacle Peak and The Castle.
