**** This hike has been changed **** Unfortunately, due to heavy snow, we can not go to Foggy Lake in Gothic Basin. Instead this is going to be a combined Colchuck Lake and Lake Stuart Hike. This would result in a 13.2 mile 2800 vt. ft. hike. The start time will be 9am at the trail head. You can read about the two hikes at: http://www.wta.org/go-hiking/hikes/colchuck-lake http://www.wta.org/go-hiking/hikes/lake-stuart Photos from my hike to Lake Stuart earlier this year are: https://picasaweb.google.com/aeh212g/LakeStuartTheEnchantments The one down side is it takes ~2.5 hrs to get to the trail head from Seattle.
