Glacier Peak Wilderness Loop & the PCT, 8 day backpacking hiking in Washington w My Own Frontier 4k
Glacier Peak Wilderness, backpacking and hiking a PCT Loop in Washington, PNW with My Own Frontier in 4k.
Join me on an 8 day, 101 mile, backpacking loop around Glacier Peak in the state of Washington, July 2019. Me and my buddy Joey Coconato start from the White River trailhead, and make the mistake of going up the White River drainage instead of the Indian Creek drainage to meet up with the PCT. We read a trail report saying the trail was not maintained, but o´boy we had no idea what we would be in for. We bushwacked in deep, sometimes impenetrable brush and vegetation for the next 15 miles. It got worse the further away from the trailhead we got, but there was no way we could turn and go back, so we pushed on and finally reached the PCT. Our trip continued over White Pass, Red Pass, Kennedy Ridge, Glacier Ridge, Fire Creek Pass, Vista Ridge, an 6 to 8 mile detour down the Suiattle river, over Buck Creek Pass, High Pass and finally Boulder Pass to end up at White River. It was an ordeal, with rain, broken tent poles, broken shoe laces, blisters and rats invading our space, several days over 20 miles, and up to 6800 ft of elevation gain. Quite the adventure. If you want to follow us on the trip, please take a look at the video I filmed in 4k ultra HD. There is some quite stunning scenery in there.
