Me and a couple backpacking mates headed in to the seldom used Chelan Summit trail area for a few days last week. Great time, zero rain, barely a cloud. Majority of the trip spent at 5000-8000ft so temps were comfortable. Right in the 70's-low 80's. Bugs were barely noticed, a 3 out of 10 at worst. Flower season seems late this year...they were out in full. Did not see another soul beyond Cooney Lake. Had a fun little run in with a black bear and plenty of cougar scat on the trail.
About 50 miles. In at the Crater Creek trailhead, out Stehekin and back to Chelan via Lady of the Lake Express.
