I had to move my site due to Tripods new policy of only providing 20 megs of
free space, my site currently uses the old maximum at nearly 49 megs. As you may
have noticed my site was also being shut down on a daily basis due to exceeding
Tripod's new bandwidth policy--but hey what could I expect for free. It was fun
while it lasted.
In the coming weeks I hope to release the new format of Alpinejo-Backcountry
Trails Guide with a new database and searching capabilities.
Thanks for visiting!

Summit Lake and it's surrounding area are beautiful.
I have been there before the bridge washed
out and have since forded the Carbon River and mountain biked up the
gravel road. It is a constant uphill to get to the lake, not for the weak
of heart. I don't think many people go up here. Rather then continuing on
Road 7820 to Coplay Lake you turn off onto Road 7810 and go to the end.
This is where the trail starts
The trail is fairly steep and the nice thing it is only about 2.5 miles
to the lake.
The lake has a backdrop of a huge cliff and the grass around the lake
make this a very scenic location. Hike up to a high point so you can get a
view of Mt Rainier and the surrounding area, well worth it.
Fishing- Take a raft this lake is pretty big and deep on the back side.
It is really nice up there, the views of Mt Rainier and the peace and
