Slate Peak.  This was to be a location of an early warning radar site in the 1960's.  The top of the peak was leveled off to accommodate the radar site, but then the site was never built.  All that remains is a large concrete slab.  The peak has a US Forest Service fire lookout.
 
At the top of Slate Peak.  The view is incredible from up here.  This is the highest point in the state of Washington that can be driven to, elevation is somewhere around 7430'.

It was nearing sunset, this is my shadow cast against a rock along the road down from Slate Peak to Harts Pass

Site of another early warning radar installation - again, all that remains is the concrete slab.
