On this exhilarating loop into the lofty Sawtooth Ridge, visit larch forests, alpine tundra plains, windswept ridges, and one, two—maybe more— sparkling alpine lakes. Scramble an 8000-foot summit and behold a serrated sea of mountains and fjordlike Lake Chelan before you. There’s lots of elevation to be gained and lots of heat and biting fl ies to endure, but the Ovals are worth a round. You can easily turn this weekend outing into an all-week adventure, scouting nearby summits, tarns, and meadowed basins.
