Years ago I ran across a book of illustrated plants by Nels Bruseth. I could kick myself for not buying it. I was pretty broke, and couldn't. Now I can't find it anywhere, not even a mention of it on-line. I wonder if I'm crazy and didn't see it after all...?

I have one of his paintings, and both original booklets on the tribes. (1954-ish and 192X (? - can't recall, i'm not home to check. The first edition was hard to come by and wasn't exactly cheap! ). The Darrington Community Center displays some of his paintings. He is buried at the Darrington Cemetery under a giant tree that was cut down a few years ago for no good reason frown.gif.

I was happy to meet Mrs. Eichenberger at the Darrington Historical Society event several years ago, which featured Bruseth artifacts, like his home made telescope! But she was so popular at the event, all I did was shake her hand.

Jules4u20, your memories are invaluable to the community of history buffs here! Keep them coming; we're fans of the Bruseth family!

Something needs to be named for this man. Bedal got a peak, Engels got a grove, Nels needs something, a trail maybe.

Mount Bruseth (7224' or 7220') is east of Mount Buckindy, west of Woods Lake, and north of Bench Lake in the Suiattle River drainage.  With 1460' of prominence and a rather small summit it is an impressive peak, worthy of the legendary man.
It is an unofficial name as far as I know.

Enter Mount Bruseth in the search box in Trip Reports and you will find a few reports with pictures, one by "smokeydon" who summited.
