Silky Katana Boy. It's a great saw and cuts well. Lightweight too.

I like the name for some reason.   smile.gif

What's especially fun about sock puppets is that you can make each one unique and individual, so that they each have special characters. And they don't have to be human末animals and aliens are great possibilities

Here's the best price I've seen lately. Unfortunately out of stock presently.

Most people on WTA work parties have their own personal saw.

On a side note we hiked Lake Creek Trail up to Black Lake this week, just a day hike to the lake and back. Ran into a NFS volunteer at the trail head and he had just hiked out past the lake and said it was a MESS. Loads of trees down out there. He said it would be lucky if it got done this year or anytime soon. (They also found an unattended fire they were able to find a guy fishing who was responsible. It boggles the mind that in an area that has burned, has obviously burned, recently that someone would be so stupid.)

Top of Andrews Ridge Roughly 6700 ft
Top of Andrews Ridge Roughly 6700 ft

I just explored the upper ridge of Little Andrews around the 6700 ft elevation. Its a disaster up there no sign of any trail anymore on ridgetop.
It is a 100% off trail trek after 5800ft as far as I could gather, fallen logs brush, a hell of an  obstacle course. Fantastic workout.

Water a super challenge too though I found two springs on Andrews side of ridge near the ridge top but very hard to find unless I gps d it.  The ridge
looking down to Chewuch River other side of Andrews Ridge

McKay Peak in Distance from ridgetop

top after walking east 1 mile has massive marshes a real jungle lots of water .

A nice side trip is little Andrews Creek itself its a pain to navigate to but many wonderful natural pools.

I did not want to return to Andrew Creek trailhead thru all that again so I decided to go
over ridge and back down other side to Chewuch river and road 5160 back. That really beat me up but made for a nice wilderness experience so close to a major forest road/ rec area.
That would make a great loop trail .

Anyway I wish you luck building that trail, it is one ambitious goal and will be a hell of a challenge and I will be the first to thank you  and the 2nd person to hike it after you !

I hope you succeed & be safe.
Keep me posted.

YES  forget going past Black  lake in hopes of reaching the pasayten high country as trail maps show.
IMPOSSIBLE
WA can produce the most surprising jungles any South American Country would envy.
No walking back there, just a desparate wade over deep brush and fallen logs

Sadly no August for me.
I was up there mid May last year as the snow melts out quickly on that steep aspect
seems that would be better than the brutal July Sun for clearing up the hot ridge.
Will try in May.

I would love to clear a path by one of the hidden water sources I discovered way up that ridge  as I don't know the water situation N / beyond in the Kay peak area.
There is water at the plateau up top but you have to detour east over awful jungle quite a ways.

I included maps of my route.
I got fed up with the slow progress and went straight up the ridge.
I'm not sure that's the ideal route but there is water.
I suppose your/the..  ideal route is more N NW. slowly ascending.
I saw no signs of the old trail up there so its a free for all.
Red circles = midsummer water source.
