Steve and I wanted to get out but were having trouble coordinating schedules. Finally we found two days that worked and decided on a loop up the north fork of the Entiat and looping over Grouse Pass and coming back down Pyramid creek. Side trips to Fern Lake and Saska Pass were options depending on how it went.

We passed on Fern Lk and Saska pass and decided to camp just below Grouse Pass at a place called (ready) Grouse camp. I crashed while Steve did a recon loop to check out some basins around Grouse pass.

The next day it was a pleasant hike out Pyramid basin and drainage. We planned several future trips as we passed trail junctions. Great trip.

Nice trip to squeeze in.  The dusting of snow gives it character.   winksmile.gif
