Originally, I had thrown out the idea of heading up to the North Cascades to do some of the iconic runs through the Enchantments.  We will likely still do that at some point, but I couldn't justify being gone for 6 days with some other late summer plans that "moved" onto my calendar.

 

After contacting folks who had already expressed an interest in joining this year's adventure, the destination has now been switched to the Indian Heaven wilderness in SW Washington.  Lots of great trails go in/out of this area, including the PCT that runs north-south through the wilderness area.  Lots of lakes and berries in the area.  The name being a reference to the fact native peoples used to gather a lot of huckleberries in this area (ok, they still do, as there are some areas still designated for native picking only).

 

The closer location means that we will be able to have some folks be able to join for just the holiday weekend.  In order to secure camp sites for the full group, we will need a few people willing to head up early (Wednesday is the plan), but then everyone else can plan to arrive Friday evening and then have 3 days of running before heading home after a Monday run.

 

The plan is to camp at one of the following lakes to set up a base camp.

 

Forlorn Lakes:

https://www.fs.usda....ea/?recid=31762

 

Cultus Lake:

https://www.fs.usda....ea/?recid=31736

 

or there are a few other options as well.  But hoping that there will be space at one of the Forlorn Lakes to fit the group.

 

We will still aim to limit group size to something reasonable for space and food planning.  12-20 is the target range, and so far the list of folks planning to join is:

  1. Torrey
  2. Angela
  3. Theresa
  4. Tom
  5. Gary
  6. Jeff
  7. Kelly
  8. Elle
  9. Justin
  10. Aaron
  11. Aaron's friend
  12. Frank
  13. Darren
  14. McGinness (self supported)
  15. Katherine (self supported)

I definitely want to run the Enchantments sometime this summer (the 19 mile point to point). If that run was on a weekend day, I'd likely try to join for atleast some of the trip.

I'll keep lurking on this thread.  I might be able to join for the 19 miler if it ends up being the Sunday of Labor Day weekend. I would just meet you at the trail.

Waiting to get a yes or no, if a friend from out of state will be visiting that weekend.  If no, I'm in.
Have never been there but have been wanting to, for many years.

I think Matt & I are in barring no injuries which seem to arise whenever we actually have a race or fun activity on the horizon

After last weekend, I think you 2 are done with pre-event injuries.  Glad you got those out of your system so you are clear for Labor Day this year.

 

BTW, how are you feeling?  Hoping it was just a bruise and you are already back to normal.

I'm definitely interested! I'll see if I can get the time off of work for that stretch.

Theresa and I are in. I've never had a chance to see the Cascades north of Mt St Helens so I'm super excited!

I thought I saw a recent post from Torrey about this year's adventure, but I can't find it now. Marianne and I are definitely interested, especially since it is a shorter drive for us than for the rest of you. Any further specifics available at this time?

What’s the other 20% of you going to do, Mr. Multitasker? :D

I'm going to try to finally make it to one of these, and I have a friend who's interested, too

It's a simple question of weight ratios

Excellent!  Although I have been revising the dates and destination, so I still need to update this thread with details.  In fact, maybe I will update post #1 right now...
