Klapatche 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.
