Bootjack 6789', Blackjack 6650' and Blackjack Ridge
A day hike in the Alpine Lakes Wilderness Southwest of Leavenworth, WA. beginning on the Bootjack TH and ascending one of the steepest trails in the area to Bootjack and Blackjack Peaks and following Blackjack Ridge to the saddle below High Chair Peak we turned around due to what appeared to be deteriorating weather, time, and possible trail / route conditions that would have prevented a timely loop out Jack Creek. We needed the route to be efficient due to the short days, weather, and sheer mileage. Good time as always with a high lunch surrounded by mountains and total solitude. 9.5 miles, 5800' round trip.
