Tronsen Ridge — Friday, Jul. 22, 2011
This was one of WTA's suggested snow-free hikes, and as usual, we were not disappointed with the choice. A little past the horse camp, the road had deep and muddy ruts, so we parked and decided to walk the last mile to the trailhead. After a half hour, we realized we must have missed the sign to #1204, so turned around, and by providence, we met an advocate of the Wenatchee Mountain Coaltion who knew the trails in this area like it was their backyard. We hiked to Mt Lillian and took in the views of the Stuart Ridge, Table Mountain and Mt Rainier Then we went eastward to awesome views of Wenatchee, and to our surprise we could even see the Columbia River. Our new friends went on their way, and we continued on the trail to Tronson Ridge and were greeted by breathtaking views from our lunch spot. The trail back to the road was filled with meadows of flowers with constant views to the South East. Fantastic day! Thank you WTA for a terrific pick!
