Heading out with Steve Gilles to the Mount Baker area.
Depending on road, weather and bug conditions, primary objective is High Pass and Gargett Mine, possibly Lone Jack Mine too.
Other options or a change of plans could include Winchester Lookout, Yellow Aster Butte, Hannegen Pass or the Bagley/Chain Lakes Loop.
With weeks upon weeks of fantastic weather we are hoping the threats of rain hold off or blow themselves off to other areas and leave us with the weather that August Hikers dream of.
Expect to be back to the car before dark and in cell phone range shortly thereafter.
