The destination of this trip is going to change to Fish Eagle Peak (aka Soloman), which is right next to Harding. The club website does not have a record for Fish Eagle, so I am leaving this posting set to Harding until after the trip when I can then write up a good route description.

Fish Eagle is at the center of the map at this link:  http://www.mappingsupport.com/p/gmap4.php?ll=47.518377,-120.996408&z=15&t=t4  (Harding is along the ridge to the northeast).  In addition to summiting Fish Eagle, my plan (assuming the weather and route conditions are favorable), is to continue northwest from the summit on the ridge that divides Chelan and Kittatas Counties.  The goal will be to go to point 6664 and then drop down to the east and visit the tarn.  There we will filter water and if its warm, take a dip in the water.  The tarn is above timberline, so it should not be too buggy and judging from the photo might only be a few feet deep.  From the tarn we go NW to the trail which on the USGS map is marked 1328.1.  Twice I have hiked from the road up to that pass, so I am 100% confident that would be an easy way back down to the cars.
