Snow on trail added to the challenge, which began about a mile into the hike. Only came across one group of 2 people the entire hike. Views from the Butte were as good as they get in the N. Cascades.

Not an overly difficult hike until the end. It will challenge your will to finish but the reward is worth it

It's a little rough going towards the top, but the view makes it all worth it. Absolutely spectacular. Don't miss Blue Lake on your way back down.
