This scramble is in an area with lots of larches; if we're lucky, they will be at their peak of autumn golden color. On Saturday, we'll make the long drive to the N. Fork of the Entiat, and hike to a camp spot, gaining around 3000 feet over 9 or 10 miles. On Sunday, we'll climb the 2 peaks, and on Monday we'll hike out and drive home. If we're feeling ambitious, we may also do Gopher Mountain. Because the drive is so long, we won't attempt this trip if the weather forecast is unfavorable.
