About our branch of The Mountaineers

The Everett Mountaineers is one of the branches of The Mountaineers. Our volunteers offer many activities and quality courses, usually in smaller groups than the Seattle branch. (Learn about The Mountaineers). Our branch is known for its more than 100 years of camaraderie and passion for the outdoors. And we have a great history of stewardship, particularly lookout maintenance and trail work.

Announcements

Next branch meeting: Wednesday, April 2nd, 2014 at 7:00 pm

Location: Snohomish County East Administration Building (Drewell Admin Bldg), 1st floor Public Hearing Room, 3000 Rockefeller (corner of Pacific & Oakes) in downtown Everett. You need to go to the open door at the north end of the building (across from the coffee shop). You can usually find parking in the streets south or north of the building.

The Mountaineers - The Early Years
Take a walk back in time through the early years of The Mountaineers. What was it like to be a member of the Mountaineers back then? We'll go exploring with an early group of Mountaineers on a trip into the mountains and along the way we'll learn who these people were and what they hoped to accomplish. This will be a multimedia presentation using photographs and film from The Mountaineers collections at the University of Washington Libraries Special Collections.

All Mountaineers and the general public are invited to attend.
Learn something new AND introduce someone new to The Mountaineers! JOIN US ON APRIL 2ND!

Franklin Bradshaw

A note from Everett Branch Chair, Matt Vadnal:

I'm sad to report that we lost an Everett Branch Mountaineer on Saturday, January 18th. Franklin Bradshaw and a companion were on Lewis Peak when a cornice collapsed and Franklin was swept down the mountain in an avalanche. A mountain Search and Rescue team - which included many Mountaineers - recovered his body at 1:00 a.m. on Sunday morning. Those of you who knew him can attest that Franklin was an accomplished mountain climber, hiker and skier who served as an instructor in many of our courses. He held the record for climbing the 100 highest peaks in Washington State in the shortest amount of time, just over four years. I recommend that everyone read the January 22nd article about Franklin on the Heraldnet website.
