Beautiful Summer Day  Sucess!

Still some snow and an easy ridge ramble from the false summit.

Lots of cultural history up there  Sucess!

The approach to the summit gives you an opportunity in mid-summer to do a lot of wildflower identification. Absolutely breath-taking views on clear days of Mt. Shuksan and Mt. Baker to the southwest. Once at the camping area, a variety of small mountain ponds abound, with remnants of the gold mining era that took place over 100 years back. Views of American Border and Canadian Border Peak are unbeatable, as well as that of Tomyhoi. Equipment can still be found, as well as a hidden mining cabin, but be sure to take good care of what you find and leave what remains for others to see.

Great Area to Explore  Sucess!

I love this area, I have since been back many times to explore the area around the tarns and hills to the SW, aw well as climbing Tomyhoi. Climbed the North Butte and the standard route.

Fun hike  Sucess!

Part of a long day trip with Theron, we bagged Tommyhoi too. The weather was a bit unsettled but good local views.

A Prime Hike  Sucess!

Short but very sweet. The colors on these slopes in the fall are fantastic.
