June 18th Wednesday

Wasootch Ridge Summit is an addition to my previous blog in October of 2013. That time due to snow we only made it as far as the last Peak before the down clinb to the right of the summit. This is the Peak with the big stone shelter.This time we went on from the stone shelter as seen below and summited the far peak.      Hyperlink to Octobers fall hike       http://wp.me/p39dPU-1r0
