DAY 2, Tuesday July 17th - Bussel NE4 and south edge of Alplands
We woke to a mix of sun & cloud & quite warm temperature, so the bugs were out early. Our route took us past several lakes as we hiked southeast towards Bussel NE4. From the "mound" that is Bussel NE4 we turned south to the edge of the Alplands. Below us Bussel Creek flowed east & to the south we could see Mt. Waddington. From there we headed northwest to make our way back to camp.
DAY 3, Wednesday July 18th - Bussel Peak
It was once again quite a warm day, so we were glad to be gaining some elevation away from the bugs. Bussel laid to the south of our camp so we worked our way past small tarns & across snow & up a snow slope to a col just east & below Bussel Peak. Lunch & then a scramble up the ridge to the long summit ridge. Terrific views of the Coast Range. We continued west along the summit ridge descending on the north side on snow & continuing north to Bussel NW1. An easy ascent up snow & rocks & from the summit we could see our camp far below. The return to camp retraced part of our route up.
