Climbing Mt. Thorp - July 2000
Forrest and Tamara, Eric and Kathy, and I do the Little Joe Creek/Thorp Lake loop trail.
We decided to try the Little Joe Creek/Thorp Lake trail, as mentioned in the
Mountaineers' book "100 Hikes in the Alpine Lakes." It's a 10 mile loop trail (12
miles counting the detour to Thorp Mountain Lookout), with a 2700 foot elevation
gain (with a lot of ups + downs as well), reaching a maximum elevation of 5850 feet
at the lookout.
Although it was raining in Seattle when we left, it ended up being a perfect
day: cool and clear.
Artistic integrity forces me to admit that this next shot was actually Kathy's
But this next one is all me.
