Looks like Sept. 16th could turn out to be a 'bonus hike' day.
Tentative plan is to go check out the trail toward Gothic Basin.
For those that don't know, the trail head is located along the Mountain Loop Highway at Barlow Pass (mid-way between Darrington and Granite Falls). Hike starts off toward Monte Cristo but diverting onto the Weden Creek trail before crossing the river. The Weden Creek trail reportedly goes to Gothic Basin.
As time allows, I might also check out the trail to Barlow Point. This trail starts at Barlow Pass too, but heads the opposite direction.
Start time is unknown but I hope to be home about 5:00pm... or at least in cell phone range by then.
