Ascent Trip Report

My brother Todd and I had a great hike to the top of North Brother. This hike is memorable because of the three distinct zones you travel through and the rest it provides until a climb into the next zone. The first being hardwoods with lots of birch and beach trees, the second being the conifer zone and the final being the krumholtz zone. We also passed a pristine alpine pond that would have made for a perfect swim but we decided to wait and swim later at Slide Dam after the hike.
