Washington Pass, April 2014 · Index · Lake Waptus, May 2015
I decided to join The [Seattle Area] Mountineers on a day hike to Goat lake, schedule for 8 June 2014. Living 4 hours away I decided to camp in the area for the weekend, heading out on Friday and returning on Monday. Unexpected car problems resulted in my arriving slightly later than planed, but still with plenty of time on the Saturday before.
The lake itself was quite nice. Being early Spring there was still a lot of snow above the lake, but the trail to the lake was clear.
I camped near the ??? river. On the way I stopped at this water fall, which is a short walk from the road.
On the way back I stopped near Ross Lake for a day hike to Payramid Lake. Despite the Washington Trail Assoation's pessamysim, I found it to be a nice little lake. Given an overnight permit I would be happy to camp near it.
