Echo Peaks as seen from above...

Echo Peaks as seen from above Budd Lake. The highest, I believe, is #8- 21 August, 2004 PS- if anyone knows what caused that weird-looking slide path, I'd be interested in knowing!

Echo Pk Slide

Greetings-a gorgeous shot, and I was there the very same day! I've ben hiking the range for 45 years-that slide was -I believe- caused by an avalanche, as best as I can remember, during the El Nino of 1997. I remember climbing up that route when it was all filled in with nasty brush and scrub, and then in 98 that slide showed up If you know that info is wrong, then all else I can think. of is an earthquake-but there is no documentation of one except in Dec 94. We scrambled round that whole area 3 different times in '04.

Re: Echo Pk Slide

Thanks for sharing! That must have been one big slide- no vegetation left on that slope at all! What were you doing/climbing in the area that day?

Re: Echo Pk Slide

we'd come up to go to Budd Lake, instead ended up scrambling up Echo Ridge, then contouring round to the ridge below Unicorn, then on north to the small valley above Budd Lake's NE shore, and down. We could clearly hear the voices of climbers on Echo and Cathedral.

cheers, Allan Blasdale
