Buckner Mountain (from Goode Mountain)

These are the ten highest non-volcanic Washington peaks. The five Washington peaks higher than these (including Little Tahoma) are volcanoes.

Bill Saur first mentioned these facts to me on a climb of Mount Stuart in 1991. We decided to give them a try. This decision led Bill and I and various companions on a long-term exploration of the Washington North Cascades.
