WA – Alpine Lakes Wilderness – Chiwaukum Circumnavigation (Part 2 – Trails 1592/1570)

Link to Part 1

In the morning I said goodbye to Lake Grace and enjoyed stunning views as I walked high above the sea of green. 

Are you Mt Adams? 

Are you Mt Rainier? 

Frosty Pass proved to be nothing more than a trail junction. It was time to say goodbye to Trail #1592 and hello to Trail #1570 the Icicle Ridge Trail.

The Icicle Ridge Trail was my favorite section of this hike. Oh how I love ridge views!

And this wildflower gal was thrilled to be tromping through the fields of lupine. 

 

Lakes Margaret and Mary 

View from Icicle Ridge (about 7,000 feet)

Upper Florence Lake

Finally, on trail snow! I brought my microspikes just in case there was snow at any of the high passes, but alas they were just dead weight in my pack. 

Spanish Camp Creek

 

Ladies Pass 

The approach to Cape Horn (7,316′).

Heading down from the pass. Oh how I love switchbacks!

Lake Edna

Good morning 

Home sweet home (not the best location for the gusty winds, but better than the other spot where a group was dealing with bothersome goats). 

Lake Edna and Cape Horn 

Oh the wildflowers!
