The Ramparts put on quite a show as the sun went down & the champagne corks flew* to celebrate an excellent TNAB evening and 10 years of marriage for GoJo & Zeusdaddy. *ok, so it ended up being a twist top, but you get the idea.

The groups were small and varied in arrival & departure times with TNAB rookies & veterans coming together to toast the brief arrival of summer. All in all, a wonderful evening in a very beautiful place. Even better, no mozzies crowded us off the Ridge this year.

Who's that on the ridge?

    Hi, all,

    I have the day off tomorrow and want to take advantage of the weather. I would like to start at the trailhead at 12 or 1 pm and head for Alta Mountain via the ridge above Rachel Lakes. I would go up via Lake Laura/Lillian route and meander through the tarns and meadows a bit. I would also plan on being on the summit of Rampart Ridge by 7:30 or 8′ish. Anyone interested in joining me? I travel at a consistent, but moderate pace with breaks.

    Please contact me via PM on NWHikers. I should be leaving Seattle by 11′ish. ~zephyr~
