The Wenatchee Guard Station is an awesome Forest Service rental on the Umatilla National Forest in southeast Washington (it's near Wenatchee Creek, no relation to the town of Wenatchee). We've booked the cabin for a three-day, two-night trip to coincide with the Geminid meteor shower. This is a moderate to difficult trip since the cabin must be accessed from a SnoPark during the winter. We'll drive down Wednesday morning, then hike in. This trip will require either microspikes or snowshoes along the access route (it's a groomed snowmobile trail). Some years snowdrifts block the main SnoPark and make it a longer approach, so plan for up to 5.5 miles to get to the cabin. Once at the cabin, there are several options for exploration via snowshoe or skis. We may need to carry in water depending upon snow levels. The cabin has propane heat, light, and cookstove and is stocked with pots/pans. Limited to 4 participants. Cost is $27/person, paid up front (fee is transferable but not refundable). Please contact Holly for additional information.
