Burroughs Mountain & Skyscraper Mountain

This was a wet workout trip on 9/6/15 to replace an orginally scheduled exploratory glacier trip between Tamanos and Banshee (via Sarvant Glacier). Had a few glimpses of Little Tahoma, but mostly 'inside of a cloud' experience with 1/4 mile visibility w/partial clearing in afternoon. Had 10-15 mph winds and mixed rain/snow to summit of 3rd Burroughs (great fun ;). For a workout we did the loop starting at White River Campground, then Burroughs connector trail, 3rd Burroughs, 2nd Burroughs, southern branch down to Shadow Lake and Wonderland trail to cars for total of ~13 miles and ~3800' (we skipped Skyscrapper). Total time of ~7.5 hours. Had ~6 inches of snow with drifts to ~1.5 feet above ~7200'.
