Gardner Slam = Gardner Mountain + North Gardner Mountain

Gardner Slam was our last backpacking trip together before fall began. To and from the camp was a bit long for my taste, but we had a great time nevertheless. The weather was gorgeous the during our entire stay, and the scramble definitely wore the dogs out.

From Gardner to North Gardner we needed to traverse a craggy section to get to Point 8487, but that wasn’t too bad. On the way down from North Gardner we saw a group of nine mountain goats moving through the gully away from us. It was our only wild animal sighting on this trip.

So long Lake Chelan-Sawtooth Wilderness. We’ll be back to visit you next summer!
