This is a steep hike over rough terrain, but our reward will be some of the best alpine viewing this side of the Continental Divide according to Mountaineers, Day Hiking – North Cascades book. Once on top we should be able to see the spectacular Cascade range, Pickets to our north and Thornton Lakes below us. If we’ve timed it right, blueberries should be available for the picking. A river fording may be required towards the beginning. The end is scrambly and may require the occasional help of our hands, but it is not an exposed area. If time and energy allows, we may head down to Thornton Lake. But we will do so only with the consensus of the group. Please plan on some post hiking dining before the long drive back. The destination may change if there will be no views from the top. Co-Leader: Monty Pratt
