sourdough_mtn_coverConditions: Day hike
Gear: snowshoes, ice axe
Map: USGS Pumpkin Mountain
Area: North Cascades
Reference: 100 Hikes in Washington's North Cascades National Park Region
Stats: approx. 6mi, 4600' gain (round trip to turn around)

We parked at Diablo and followed (best we could) the lookout trail. Snow soon covered the trail which we were trying to follow so we found ourselves taking a more direct route up.

This trip is a lot of gain in a few miles...

We didn't make the lookout ( Steve did but no one else joined him). Instead, we called it quits about 1/2 mile from the lookout on a nice broad bench about due east of the lookout site.

Great views over to the south towards Colonial and Snowfield...
