Ascent Trip ReportGreat day starting with blue sky and sun and then thickening fog obscures all views early in the trip. Lovely ridge snowshoe starting at Blewett Pass - we hit most of the high points between Swauk Point and Old Pass Hill. Descended south, cross-country on a ridge from the saddle west of Old Pass Hill to end a turnout along Hwy 97.
~6 hours for the traverse at a very leisurely pace. We started at 9:30 AM at Blewett Pass and finished at the turnout on Hwy 97 around 3:30 PM.
