Grindstone~Lake Edna Larch Hike, ALW : Scott and  I went  hunting for larch trees on Sunday, with a forecast  calling for 20% chance of rain.   We decided, sort of at the  last minute, to try for the summit of Grindstone Mountain at Chatter Creek off the Icicle River Road in Leavenworth.

The weather is absolutely miserable, and we forgo the summit in the clouds. But we find instead a gorgeous larch meadow walk, and make it to Lake Edna, where Scott surprises me by jumping in.  Crazy guy.

We did around 6000 feet gain, and maybe 12 miles?? Not sure.
