Lake Julius / Loch Eileen

Skiing into the back country on a clear sunny day we crossed Lake Julius.  The view shows the High Meadows with Baldy the high point on the right, and Tamarack Point the peak on the left.  As you ski this deep into the Chiwaukum Mountains you really feel the mystique of the wilderness.  Below Baldy is the lake basin for Lock Eileen our destination today.

We climb 600 feet up the drainage to Loch Eileen.  The sun and mountains are glorious.  We are half way to the High Meadows, a future destination.  The ski back to High Camp from here is less than 2 hours.  A perfect half day tour from Scottish Lakes High Camp!
