Our Stay at High Camp »

January 7th, 2017

Hi Chris,

Just wanted to drop a note to say thank you for the nice time we had. And Happy New year!

It was a nice first visit for me. Everyone was so nice and helpful. I’d love to come back for more fun in the snow. I’d also like to come back up for some volunteer work to help out where needed. And then there’s the picture of the fish that’s an image beckoning me to do some fishing up there.

Scottish Lakes

From an article by Ed Leckert Images:

This run is more enjoyable than ever thanks to the thinning of what had become a dense lodge pole pine thicket above Tranquility.

Beyond the Ten Essentials »

Oh I am hoping this article does not get “preachy”. We in the back country community cannot be attentive enough to our decision-making as we play hard at what we love to do.

Yael & Gal’s Engagement »

Well, it is February the month of Valentine’s Day and I have a beautiful love story to share with you. This occurred over Thanksgiving which is why the snow levels in the video are not as huge as we have now! But, no matter, it is a great story.

A Blast From the Past »

This photo appeared in the Getaways magazine section of the Seattle Post Intelligencer, December 27, 2001. I have no memory of the article and the picture seems to be much older than that! We purchased Scottish Lakes in 1994, so I believe the picture was taken earlier. This is a shout out to those High Camp Yahoos of the Bill and Peg Stark era.
