Default Ancient Lakes May 20-21, 2017

After finishing Colchuck and descending back into the bustling Leavenworth and full campsites everywhere, we drove out East to the Quincy area for this trail. Shoutout to sidetrip for your TR about this trail, definitely worth the extra drive from Leavenworth. Very reminiscent of Kamloops/Osoyoos area.

Quite a few cars at the parking lot, but no tents close to ours due to the huge area. Starting to get pretty hot there! Bugs also starting to emerge, and we were eaten pretty good by the mosquitoes until we got a fire going.

Wow, amazing pictures. Going to have to make my way up there before it gets too hot. Thank you for the detailed report!

Did you get a chance to explore the area much? There are some pretty interesting geologic formations around and about between Ancient Lakes and the Dusty Lake coulee.

Every journey begins with one small step.

Unfortunately we got to the TH relatively late (like half hour before sunset haha) and wanted to head back to Leavenworth in the morning to check it out before heading back to BC so didn't have as much time as we would like to explore around. It really looked like there were lots of interesting features from your trip that we missed out on, but we definitely plan on heading back some time to spend a little more time sauntering around.

Yeah it's a great shoulder season backpack when it's rainy and depressing in Vancouver. Definitely worth a little exploration. We will be returning sometime again as well to check out a Columbia River Loop trail of some sort we spotted on a map that connected to these trails as well.
