Craggy Slam in Pasayten Wilderness / 帕塞頓荒野裏的崎嶇滿貫

Craggy Slam was our first backpacking trip ever! But it was one of the significant highlights of the summer. Plus, it was our first Bulger List double-peak adventure.

Copper Glance Trail

We met a couple and their dog up by the meadow en route to the camp. To my surprise, I had recently met them through nwhikers.net. So we chatted a bit before they continued down the trail.

We reached camp right before nightfall. Then it took me forever to set up our tent in the dark. It felt scary to be the only person with two dogs here. But we made it through the night!

Big Craggy Peak

Going up the scree slopes to Big Craggy Peak was laborious. I also took one step forward and two steps back. But the pups were smart to weaved through the boulders. So it was more manageable.

Views were breathtaking at the top. They were very much like our trip to Robinson Mountain last weekend. But this place felt more desolate compared with the national forest.

West Craggy Peak

Traversing to West Craggy ended up easier than I had expecred. But the poor dogs were ready to crah after Big Craggy Peak. Instead, the two champs made their way up to West Craggy Peak with me.

On the way back, we took a direct route through the gully. So that got us back into the upper basin. Then we checked out this area before going back to camp.
