Trail Report

We expected hard hiking after Stehekin and I received word today that the team was exhausted. ” climbed about 5000 feet and 20 miles in 2 days. Thursday August 31 short day up and over Suiattle pass dropped 1500 to Minor Creek camp”

The Suiattle River valley should be easier heading out now with lots of lush vegetation and water flow.
