Descending the long scree slope S of the Buckhorn saddle to the Marmot Pass trail takes about 15 minutes, while the ascent takes 1-2 hours. While the lower 1/3 of the slope is sparsely vegetated, and the upper 1/3 has some outcrops of sharp, shattered shales, the central 1/3 is very loose gravel/sand scree. This is a view of the slope from the saddle (~1824m/6000') between the 2 summits of Buckhorn mountain, taken on June 9, 2002.
