Trail from Echo Lakes  Sucess!

The "unofficial" trail from the Triangle lake junction is in better shape than the "official" spur trail from the PCT.

Skeeters are out!
Pics are here.

Trail from Echo Lakes  Sucess!

Hiked on my bachelor party with Eric, Scott, and Kevin. Should have brought more food instead of beer...

Great Dayhike  Sucess!

Amazing weather, great views, and very few people made for a great dayhike from the Echo Lakes approach!

Up Tamarack Trail to Echo Peak  Sucess!

I hiked Echo Peak via the Tamarack Trail with Anita. After hanging around on the summit for a while in perfect weather, we descended Echo Peak's northeast-facing ridge to Upper Angora Lake. We purchased lemonades at Angora Lakes resort, talked with several friendly people, then made our way down the steep trail to Fallen Leaf Lake, lemonades in hand. I remember giggling with Anita, and heard her say, "I feel like I just walked out of a bar!" All in all a perfect, mellow, and very fun day.

I also climbed this peak from Upper Angora Lake in June of 2000, solo.

Many Times

This was one of my grandfathers favourite hikes, and we used to do it all the time when I was young. Usually we'd just head straight uphill from our cabin by the Echo Lakes Channel. Sometimes we'd take other approaches too though. Good times!

Route Climbed: Echo Lakes ridge traverse Date Climbed: Aug 27, 2004  Sucess!

Followed the ridge around Flagpole, this, Ralston, and a couple of other bumps whose names I forget. Mellow and surprisingly enjoyable.

Route Climbed: Flagpole Peak Traverse Date Climbed: 11-06-2005  Sucess!

We climbed this out of Echo Lakes via Flagpole Peak. After Echo Peak we continued on to Angora Peak and Kieth's Dome. Cloudy with occasional sun, windy, not too cold. Snow higher up was ancle-deep.
