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.

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.
