View up the Lost River Near Lucky Pass

In June, a backpacker has his eyes to the high country. In the lowlands of Puget Sound, summer is in full swing but the mountains are still wrapped in a thick blanket of snow. Itching to get out, we decided to try a trip to the eastern side of the Pasayten Wilderness, where a light snowpack meant an earlier than usual opening.


Glacier Peak Wilderness:
Pyramid Mountain

Fern Lake

Pyramid Mountain is on of my favorite hikes. It is located on the ridge that is on the west side of Lake Chelan. The site of an old lookout, this is one of the few 8000+ ft mountain tops in Washington that can be reached by trail. Grand views in all directions are the reward for your effort.


Bridger Wilderness:
Wind River Range

Andrew & Kyle on Lost Lake Trail

In planning for over a year, it was the biggest expedition so far for Troop 24 - an 11 day backpacking trip in the Bridger Wilderness in the Wind River Mountains of Wyoming. It's close to a thousand miles to the trailhead, near Pinedale, Wyoming and it would take us two long days of driving to get there.
