Alpinejo.tripod.com: Backcountry Trails Guide
Is moving to a new web server, please click on this link to go to  Alpinejo.com .

Please update your bookmarks.

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!

Kachess Lake and Little Kachess Lake are nice change from all the other high energy hikes in the area. The trail is an easy stroll along the shoreline.

I picked a nice day and I only seen one other person up there-it was a gentleman who was trying to quit smoking, so to make sure he did not smoke he was heading up to Steven's Pass were he had someone picking him up the next weekend 

Fishing-- It was poor. I tried at the camp ground and again at the north end of the lake and only landed a couple.

The campground looks like it gets a far amount of use, so I will probably steer clear of here in the summer.
