Day trip from car: From Boulder Creek basin, left trail at around 5,000' on small climbers tread and crossed Boulder Creek to get onto the west side of creek; trail became more defined on west side; ascended herder's path up switchbacks southwesterly through subalpine forest and tall flowering plants; crossed stream, continued to follow trail into blueberry meadows (most continuous blueberry meadow I've seen in the Cascades) and left the trail at ~5,500, ascending westerly to 7,200' notch on ridge, above steep, open, sandy slope and south of point 8,373 (Clark's south summit); crossed ridge and descended westerly down steep, broken gully (with snow plug) onto south slopes of Clark; made northwesterly rising traverse to summit on snow and ice; considered climbing Luahna, but out of time for this was a day trip from the car. Retraced our route after investigating traverse to Luahna. With Julie Brugger and David Salinger.
