Gold Creek Basin

Snoqualmie Pass


MARCH 24, 2007  - A Mountaineers snowshoe tour.  It was a rainy day when we set off on this snowshoe, but the temperature was mild, and the clouds did not detract from the beauty of the scenery.  We hiked through the woods and a wide valley, while Kendall Peak and Rampart Ridge loomed ghostlike in the fog.  A traverse around the lake was stunning, but because the rain became heavy around noon, we only stopped for a brief snack break before moving on.  A few geese were walking on the frozen lake, and others flew overhead.
