Ptarmigan Traverse

Any one done the PTraverse this year? Ranger at Darrington says the road is under construction on the Suiattle River Road to the Downey Creek Campground, She said the old bridge is torn down. No one from the Ranger Station has been up there she said...??? Anyway, wondering about getting across the Creek. Last time we came out you could walk the bridge... seemed like fording it would be a challenge. Any way, the Marblemount ...

Driving to RMNP from the East

Headin' to RMNP in a few weeks and was curious which driving approach is easier right now due to road construction. Normally I come in from the north on 34 via Loveland, but was considering coming in from the south via 36. I talked to someone today that said there is a lot of construction on 36 that added a significant amount of time to his drive. I would be coming through this area very ...

Short backpacking trip this month -- Where should I go?

I haven't backpacked in 20 years, but I've got a funny window to do just that this month: all of a Sunday and Monday; I can also leave Saturday night around 6:00 pm, which could be enough time to reach a trailhead and find a campsite (maybe). (I wish I had one more day so I could hike for day, have a summit day, and hike back for a day...but I don't.)

I want to ...

What glacier is that?

I’ve been going through my old slides and cannot remember where some of them were taken and would appreciate help.

I believe this is Rainier and most likely Cowlitz Glacier (with Adams in background? However, Adams’ top looks too sharp).

Perhaps someone would be able to identify it easily. Thanks a lot.

Gannett and Granite in september ?

we're looking to go for Gannett and Granite this summer ...

our team of five has a common open window of dates in mid-september ... kind of late season for these peaks ?

friends have said that Gannett's bergschrund should be wide open ("impassable") by then ... and that we might experience snow on Granite's final approach (not enough to place pickets, but enough to make the final climb kind of unhappy meal) ...

some ...

Devil's Postpile NM Camping

Hello everyone. I am planning to hike the general area around Devil's Postpile National Monument in the next few weeks (Rainbow Falls, Thousand Island Lake, etc.). Due to circumstances at work, I cannot plan too far in advance, so it appears as if I will need to secure a first come first served site in the general area (Pumice Flat, NPS Campground, etc.) between August 9 and August 23.

My question is, what are my ...
