Ascent Trip Report

Via Louis Lake. With David Salinger. Camped at Upper Louis Lake. Smoke from forest fires was intolerable. Saw bear on approach (we scared him half to death!), more bear tracks on trail below Louis Lake heading up. Ermine visitation at camp. Watched a swimming vole in Upper Louis Lake. Many back-country horsemen/women visit Louis Lake (but not Upper Louis Lake). Faint to no trail between Louis Lake and Upper Louis Lake. Easy cross country travel to Bugger Gibbs (Ba) summit. Watched two Golden Eagles (?) for an hour, as they soared and played, and watched us. Did not pursue other summits due to smoke inhalation and no views. Hiked out due to getting smoked and salted (too much salty jerky!) and went to hear Pierre Bensusan perform in Twisp.
