Tubal Cain TH to Buckhorn Pass then Marmot Pass and B17 bomber crash site on return
18 miles RT! I forgot to turn Gaia after lunch! 3 mph for first 3 then 2.6 mph for most then uber slow to marmot with snow! With lunch and chatting 9 he Redo in mid to late June. When Rhodies in bloom and days long! Did crash site, Buckhorn Pass, Marmot Pass. Rhodies were perfect and so many wild flowers! Frickin most awesome hike - saw total of 4 people except for a few at air crash. Track a bit off trail due to snow fields and glissading!!! Go back and do trail to Buckhorn Pass and then cut across ridge and go up Buckhorn. Short cut trail knocks off 0.9 but I would only do on way down and if you have good knees.
Copper Creek to Marmot Pass (11/21/19)
Beautiful clear day with great closeup views of Buckhorn and Iron Mountain most of the day, Deception and Mystery from Buckhorn Pass area to Marmot and even Glacier Peak and Mount Baker and Mount Shuksan at times.
