7:30 AM at Leavenworth Ranger Station
We will enter the Saturday 7:45 AM lottery drawing for a permit to camp in the Colchuck Lake (2000 feet gain 9 miles RT) or Lake Caroline (2900 feet gain 11 miles RT) permit zones,. On Sunday, those that would like to, will attempt to day hike up to the upper Enchantment Lakes via 7800 foot Aasgard Pass (2200 feet gain 4 miles RT, with all the gain in the last 3/4 mile) or to 7300 foot Windy Pass (1000 feet gain 4 miles RT), depending on what zone we camped in.. We will then head out that afternoon the way we came in. If we are not able to be permitted for either of these zones, there will be some other options that we can decide on then.
