Buckwheat, Dan the Man, Peter, and Kyle at Travers(e) Lake

We met an cowboy and his son near the end of the trip who referred to this lake as Travers Lake. When Fred reached out to pet his old sheep dog, he told us, "I don't think you'll be wantin to do that. He don't take too kindly to strangers". He was also packing an old revolver that would be more at home in 1900 than in 2000.

Massie Lake Camp

Massie Lake in the Glacier Peak Wilderness is a beautiful spot in October after the larches have turned into their fall colors. You have to earn your spot in this paridise, by climbing a long abandoned sheepherder's route from the valley below.
