Park to Pyramid Creek
Sept. 10 - fifth day - left Golden Lakes, 5000
ft., down to No. Puyallup R. at 3600 ft. then climbed back up to Klapatche
Park at 5400 ft. , just under 8 miles. Aurora Lake was a shallow puddle.
I had been forwarned by hikers going the other way, so I carried water
up to Klapatche. I was early enough and the weather excellent, therefore
I had time to go out beyond the shallow lake (above) and photograph
the mountain in changing afternoon light. The next morning I hiked
up to St Andrews Lake to get to the next good water. It was on the
way to my next campsite at Pyramid Creek.
