Getting to the Scottish Lakes High Camp is half the fun. Located at 5000 feet in the North Central Cascades, the trip up is accomplished with four wheel drive trucks and a fleet of snowmobiles with talented drivers. Owners Don and Chris Hanson pick their staff carefully ensuring you of a safe and friendly trip from the valley floor parking lot to the Base Camp below McCue Ridge.
If you are lucky you will have a warm clear day to get there, since the ride can be cold and windy. Following miles of forest roads, the landscape alternately is heavily timbered and then open as previously logged hillsides show vast gently rolling terrain, just beckoning for skis or snowshoes to lay down new tracks.
As soon as the travelers get to the cabins, an assortment of activities are calling to them from the surrounding woods and slopes. Rides are fun, but getting a ride is better. We engage friends and share the little slopes about the camp.
All the kids get into the act with help from friends, and a little fresh taste treat from Dad.
