West Fork Buttermilk Creek Valley was the first area in Lake Chelan-Sawtooth Wilderness we had visited
Washington State second hundred highest peaks (T200). The ranked high points have 400 feet or higher of clean prominence.
Coincidentally, the late afternoon start time was the same as our first trip six years ago when pups and I climbed Gardner Mountains.
Five miles in from the Cedar Creek Trailhead, we crossed a good size stream at 4,500′.
Pup and I car camped at the empty White Pine Creek Trailhead Fright night.
Pup and I got a restful night at the South Creek Campground after yesterday’s outing.
It had been a great summer with ever so gorgeous weather.
I had completely underestimated the scale of Pasayten Wilderness on our first visit to the area three years ago.
Pup and I car camped Friday night in the pullout parking off Highway 20 to get an early start.
Cathedral Slam = Cathedral Peak + Amphitheater Mountain + Remmel Mountain + Windy Peak
This was the most exhausting and challenging trip for the pups both physically and mentally.
