Trip: Huckleberry Mountain - The Trail Trip Date: 11/30/2019 Trip Report:
In perhaps the longest shoulder season in 43 years what is a man to do? Ski areas closed, backcountry boney, ice thin, wet and scrappy....sigh. I guess it is time to slog up a bump in a scenic part of the range and take pictures. At least we didn't need snowshoes. That would have added insult to injury. Here are some views to tide you over until who knows when....... (I hope you like Whitechuck).
You'll get used to Whitechuck (captions are for photo above)
Pugh and phew, it's a long way up to this point of the ridge and the views.
It looks snowy in the upper Suiattle, but don't be fooled.
Tired of Whitechuck yet?
Sloan (L) and Misch(R), one is worth climbing and the other isn't.
You guessed it
The Suiattle River Road is still fixed, thankfully
Gear Notes: boots and a sense of humor Approach Notes: Suiattle Road to the TH and start walking uphill!
