The Enchantments, Little Annapurna — Sunday, Jul. 12, 2015

Central Cascades
Spent the night at the Colchuck trailhead so we could get an early start to our run through to the Snow Lakes trailhead by the afternoon. 4:30am start time, arrived at Colchuck around 5:45am and were up Aasgard Pass a bit after 7:00am. Encountered a handful of goats at the pass and Upper Enchantments. We took a detour up to the summit of Little Annapurna and were gifted with gorgeous views of the surrounding area - very little snow and generally pretty easy to navigate starting from the lower approach as long as you follow the cairns/just head upward. Mostly cloudy day until the early afternoon, when it started to get a little warmer. Blessed with good luck, we found some friendly backpackers who were willing to give us a lift back to the Colchuck trailhead within two minutes of finishing the run, right around 2:30pm.

Camping?

Hi there - just wondering - did you need a permit to camp at the Colchuck trailhead (Stuart Lake TH)? I'd like to just do a hike to Colchuck, and wondering if it's Ok for me to camp right at the trailhead the night before. Thank you!
