Guye Peak, 6/19/01

Cebe Wallace, Courtenay Schurman and John Olsen led three basic students Colleen Christensen, Annie Breckenfeld, and Jacob Englestein up to the top of Guye Peak near Snoqualmie Pass. Another Mountaineers group started ahead of us but ended up somehow slightly off route, allowing us to proceed to the summit in front of them. Beautiful summer day with views of other Snoqualmie summits all the way to Rainier.

Following are pictures in order taken, from car to boulder field to summit and down the scrambling trail to the Alpental parking lot. All photographs taken by Courtenay Schurman except where noted.

Jacob, Colleen and Cebe joke around on the boulder field leading up to Guye
