Alpine Scramble - Mount Baldy

With rain and wind in the forecast we changed the destination from Vets Peak in the North Cascades to Baldy (Easton).

  • Road suitable for all vehicles
  • Trail is in good shape.  Some blow down has yet to be cleared on the upper ridge.

Baldy offered a reasonable goal in foul weather, with a trail to avoid wet brush, trees to offer some wind protection. and a summit to attain.  We gained 3,500' in 6:30 hours of travel.  There's still a good display of flowers in the higher meadows.
