With Rachael. Long day trip, probably about 25 miles with the add-on of PT 12683. We left the trail for the headwall to get to the summit a little too early and it was pretty grubby, our descent path was much better. Beautiful views, saw a huge herd of Elk above Little Goose Lake. Might have been a long route, but it was a very enjoyable day.
A long, enjoyable backpack in excellent fall weather. Started at Ivy Creek TH and set up camp at lovely Goose Lake. Some snow to deal with, but not too bad. The summit area is interesting but easy if dry.
"Got tight last night on absinthe and did knife tricks. Great success shooting the knife into the piano. The woodworms are so bad and eat hell out of all furniture that you can always claim the woodworms did it."
