The Windy Pass trail is part of the final section of the PCT before it ends in Canada. From the TH at Harts Pass, the trail winds through flower drenched meadows surrounded by endless peaks with such names as the Needles, Silver Star, Golden Horn and Azurite. Hardly anywhere can one find such spectacular views with such little effort. Elevation gain is reported to be 500' in and 1000' out. Every hike I have done from the 100 Classic Hikes in Washington book has been awesome and I have a feeling this one will be too. Preference will be given to those who are signed up for Laurie's Sourdough Mtn hike on 7/3 by June 25th. Three campsites allowing 2 cars/8people have been reserved at the Newhalem campground from Friday, July 2nd through Monday, July 5th. Anyone interested should contact me asap, but no later than June 25th so I can cancel all sites and/or dates not needed. The fee should not be more than $10/night and will most likely be less. Spending the night in the area before the hike is highly encouraged although I will provide participants names and phone numbers for carpooling purposes. Please don't hesitate to contact me with any questions. Co-leader: Laurie Carter
