Mount Margaret Backcountry Lakes Professional Review and Guide
"Travel through Mount Saint Helens’s famous 1980 blast zone to a series of alpine lakes tucked within rugged ridges denuded of their forest cover. Though the area took a full hit from the eruption that leveled ancient forests and blanketed the region in pumice, the Mount Margaret Backcountry is no barren wasteland. Nature has been busy recolonizing the region. Wildlife and wildfl owers are prolifi c. The topography, however, is harsh, and the trails tough, with tread that frequently washes out. But this rugged landscape is also simply awe inspiring."
--Craig Romano, Backpacking Washington: Overnight and Multi-Day Routes (The Mountaineers Books).
