This is an “Under the Hill Rovers” (UTHRS) outing for young Mountaineers in their 20’s and 30’s. Join me for a hike on Saturday, July 7, to Tired Creek / Polallie Ridge in the Alpine Lakes Wilderness area near Salmon la Sac. About 9 miles round trip, 2600 feet elevation gain, Highest point 5360 feet (depending on snow conditions). Citing “100 hikes in Washington’s Alpine Lakes” (hike #64): “Splendid views are to be had from this high ridge, and though the trail is dry (look to your canteens, troopers) the mouth will water when the eyes drink in Cooper Lake, Dutch Miller Gap’s bold rock peaks, and ice-creamy Mt. Hinman and Mt. Daniel, the latter famed as the highest peak in King county”. “…. The best views are from the top of this ridge, a logical turnaround for day-hikers and an absolutely mandatory side trip for those continuing on. Leave the trail at any convenient spot, scramble to the crest, and walk to the highest point, 5360 feet, a great place to soak up scenery and spend the day watching shadows move across distant mountains.” See also: We meet 8:30 am at Issaquah’s Park & Ride Interim Parking Lot Darren.
