Ascent Trip Report

Went up to Canada yesterday (Manning Provincial Park) to hike into the US. Not via the PCT but to a Fire Lookout (Monument 83) with Sara Santos. We hike almost 10 miles to the lookout on Sunday and Monday morning we hiked out. The first 4 miles were maintained and the following 6 miles we encountered over 300 blow-downs. A light drizzle the last mile going up. Sunday the tops of the mountains in the Pasayten Wilderness were in clouds and this morning the bottoms were in clouds. I love the way the Canada-USA border was clear-cut approx 20 feet wide in both directions. We had some Canadian (from Tim Horton's) butter tarts to celebrate. If walked to from Slate Peak along the PCT and then over would take nearly 30 miles (one way). Lots of bugs also (mosquito)so have your bug repellent.
