Spokane Mountaineer Tyler Nyman gained this frosty view of Stevens Lake and Upper Stevens Lake last weekend near Mullan, Idaho, during an 8.3-mile traverse across Stevens Peak, the highest mountain in the area. The Group hiked to Upper Stevens Lake then climbed the ridge to the west to gain the summit of Stevens Peak, logging 3,275 cumulative feet of elevation gain in less than 4 hours 20 minutes of hiking time.
“We followed the ridge west and dropped down to the Lone Lake Basin, where we picked up the Lone Lake trail and followed it back to the trailhead,” Nyman said. “We walked a short distance on the road to get back to the Stevens Lake trailhead.”
