Ascent Trip Report

***Private Outing***

While in Richland visiting my grandma on Tanya and my 7th Anniversary, Tanya and I head south while the old girl naps to grab a couple nearby peaks. Badger Mtn is a nice little peak rising up above town; it seems locals use it as a conditioning hill judging by the full parking lot at the West End Trail head and the several dozen people up there enjoying the nice and cool sunny day.

Tanya and I took the road, rather than the Skyline Trail, right on up to the radio tower set on the high point. Maybe a couple of miles round trip with a few hundred feet of gain. Really nice 360 degree views up there of the Colombia Basin with the Colombia and Yakima Rivers carving there way southeast across the basin. Vineyards all over the place; with the Goose Ridge vineyard sharing the south side of Badger.
