This is a short collection of photos taken of Ron Black on the peak of Mt Dickerman, a popular tough hike in the mountains east of Granite Falls in the Cascade mountain range of Washington state.   The several missing years were due to travels to other regions at this time of year.   The three photos taken in Sept 2001 were accomplished  just eight weeks after my quad heart bypass surgery!   I am very grateful to be atop mountains after having that heart condition so well treated!   Thanks to Dr. Brevig of Providence Regional Medical Center at Everett, WA.
