Okanogan N.F. - Mt. Leecher

This is another Okanogan lookout hike from late July 2005. A road leads all the way to the top but the road was gated prior to that and a herd of hundreds of heifers kept watch over the road and so what was supposed to be a driveup became an easy offtrail hike. This lookout apparently is being renovated and may be reactivated however I did not see much in the way of signs of ongoing maintenance. Views were a bit thin, this mountain is East of Twisp and really into the lower elevation rolling forested hills of the Okanogan which are not as scenic as some other locales. Regardless, the few photos that I did take are here:
