Leaders: Cheryl Talbert, Julie Eiselt This backpack takes participants up over three high passes with astounding flowerfields and close-up views of Glacier Peak; two of the nights will be at gorgeous high-country lakes, including Image Lake which is often featured in photos of 'Best of the Northwest' due to the reflection of Glacier Peak in the water. This is a life-list trip for PNW backpackers! If sign-up is “closed”, PCT Series program members can sign up for the hike (or wait list), by emailing Chris Caviezel, and non PCT-Series members may sign-up if the hike “re-opens” about ten days prior to the event (Thursday).

Carpooling: Since leaving cars parked at park & ride lots for more than 24 hrs is prohibited, trip leader(s) will try to organize carpooling ahead of time. When you sign up, please indicate if you can drive and how many people you can take. Due to the distance and significant elevation gain, this trip is for very fit hikers with the gear and experience to be able to pack light and maintain a steady pace without frequent rest stops.
