First, my apologies for the late post. I have a pretty good reason. I've moved to South America. It was a pretty hectic September for me, so I am just now getting around to this...
The Wigwams are a pretty special place. My hiking buddy Bob could not believe that he could have been hiking in the Spokane area for 10 years and to not have known about the Wigwams. Incredible scenery, lots of opportunity for off-trail exploration...
One caveat - the road is in bad shape. The main road was closed for some reason this summer, and we were forced to drive the secondary roads. A few times bottoming out on the water bars in my Forester.
On to the scenery:
Bob, with our first ridgeline view
Lion's Head Peaks
Upper Priest Lake
Lookout Mountain, with Canada in the distance
Lake near the summit of the Wigwams, with Priest Lake in the background
Twin Peaks and the high granite to the south
The ridgeline above Kent Creek
Ridgeline looking east
On the ridge, looking west
Detail of the western ridge end - note the profile and overhang
At the east overhang
Chimney Rock in the distance
Looking west, from the east end
On the ridgetop - easy hiking
Panorama from the top of the west Wigwam
[Sorry about the resolution on the panorama - picasa seems to have an "800" limit to the long dimension.]
The one stunning feature of the ridge is how it looked like a wave that was just cresting. It was really nice.
So, being in Uruguay, I probably won't get back there for a while. So I will have to settle for hikes in the Torres del Paine/Patagonia for a couple years.
