Luahna Peak & Clark Mountain
2013/08/31 to 2013/09/01
Big cedar on the White River Trail.
The trail got brushy after the Boulder Creek intersection.
We missed the turn-off from the White River Trail to the Thunder Creek boot path on the first try. And we couldn't even find the fork from the Thunder Creek boot path onto the Luahna boot path, so we just headed up towards Luahna in the direction we though the boot path was.
We finally did find the boot path up Luahna. Then we lost it. Then we found it.

This gully seemed to be the easiest way to the summit of Luahna.
