“Camp beneath one of the largest rock faces on the continent.”— samh Haraldson
Follow Allen Creek up the gorgeous, glacial mountain valley under the peaks of Allen and Wynn Mountains. Here, you'll enjoy the sight of snow on the high peaks well into the late summer months, and see the cascading waterfalls from the high cliffs as that snow melts.
Upon reaching your destination at the head of the basin, you are treated to the north face of Siyeh Peak. This is considered by some to be the tallest vertical rock face on the continent - including the imposing faces of California's Yosemite.
The intrepid alpine lake swimmer may choose to brave the frigid waters of Cracker Lake. Don't be fooled by its deep blue tropical-looking color - it is extremely cold!
