|Flying to Seattle - Grand
|Here's the first
look we had of the Cascade
Mountains in Washington
in September, 1968.
We also studied the following two books well beforehand:
1. Routes and Rocks - Hiker's Guide to the North Cascades from Glacier Peak to Lake Chelan, by D.F.o Crowder and R.W. Tabor, The Mountaineers, Seattle, 1965; and
2. Climber's Guide to the Cascade and Olympic Mountains of Washington, by a Committee of the Cascade Section of the American Alpine Club, The American Alpine Club, 1961.
bussed* to Chelan to catch
the Lady of the Lake ferry
for a charming
boat ride fifty miles up the lake to Lucerne.
* Not sure how we got to Lake Chelan ... maybe we actually rented an automobile or automobiles ... This part ought to be a little easier now, 37 years later.
|We got great views of the
mountains on the west side of the lake.
From Lucerne to Holden there's a matter of a little local transportation ...
|Here's our first view of our
first goal: Bonanza
Here are some links to the mountain:
