Ascent Trip ReportThree day casual trip with Mark, Sue, Patty and the dogs. After the drive from Tukwila, we were on the trail around 11am. Hiked up to Gardner Meadows, being the first to arrive we claimed the first camp spot next to the giant old growth tree, a great spot. Day two we climbed Gardner first, then dropped down to 7400 and traversed over to pt. 8487 and ran the ridge to N. Gardner. Saw one other person on N. Gardner. Wasn't sure what to expect with the ridge traverse from the top of Gardner, since we had the dogs we opted for the guaranteed fasted way for them. Dogs bagged their 14th Bulger. Day three hike out, super hot in Winthrop, 90!
