Until now, I've never heard of De Roux Creek or Gallagher Lake.
Looks like an awesome spot to spend a weekend! What are the
coordinates of Hawkins Mtn - is it located in the Issaquah Alps ??
What about Mount Tompson in the Snoqualmie group, the one next
to Red Mountain? Have you had a chance to get up there yet, right
off the PCT? Suppose it would be crowded on the weekends.
When I lived in Puyallup back in the 1980s, I was able to get
some weekdays off. There's nothing like seeing nobody else in the
Cascades, especially when the weather cooperates. -Larry
