The majestic Mount Adams (12281ft)

What an inspirational and beautiful place!

Today we are visiting the ECETI Range in Trout Lake, Washington. Located by the base of the majestic Mount Adams (12281ft), James Gillians home is a mysterious place visited by people from all over the world. There is a long history of UFO sightings in the area going back hundreds of years in Native American Lore. An absolutely interesting experience both talking to Mr. Gillian and to observe the ongoing activities at the Sanctuary.


Mount Adams is the second highest peak in Washington, stands in the southwestern part of the state. The Yakamas called it Pahto. They claim it as their mountain. On a clear day Pahto (Mt. Adams), the sacred mountain of the Yakamas, towers above the Lower Valley. The great white mountain represents the ways of the past – the pursuit of game on the foothills, the gathering of wild plant foods on the lower slopes and the snows which give life to everything. Most of all, Mt. Adams symbolizes the strength of the People, who in spite of years of adversity, forged a truly strong and great Nation. This is a legend told by Jobe Charley.
