We woke up in the clouds this morning and no views of the giant peaks surrounding us. It was damp but not raining and temps in the 40’s. There was a lot of climbing (and just as much descending), over 9000′ by the time the day was done. Many of these were 300O’ at a time.
There were quite a few blow downs to navigate.
Darth Vada getting low.
Luckily, there is a bridge to cross the White Chuck River, even if it is a bit compromised.
Tons of berry pickin’ along the trail.
DV filling up water at a gorgeous cascade.
Then there were the switchbacks.
This is a view across the valley of what we will soon be climbing.

Finally the clouds cleared with an incredible view of Glacier Peak.
We camped with some nice folks climbing some of the nearby peaks for the weekend.
