    Hope SAR can reach her soon.

    Looks like a beautiful place, but the climb is not a stroll in the park, per this link: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vesper_Peak
    "The steep north face was first climbed in 1968 by Bruce Garrett and Jim Langdon; several routes exist on the face, with difficulties in the 5.6 to 5.8 range.[SUP][3][/SUP]The summit can be reached from the Sunrise Mine Road (No. 4065), off the Mountain Loop Highway.[SUP][5][/SUP] The hike is a 10-mile (16 km) round trip with an elevation gain of 4,114 feet."

    Snohomish County, Anne Rule territory.

    Also it sounds like this woman isn't too sharp minded and just cost the tax payers of WA a whole lot of money due to her bad judgement.

    If the dogs got left behind or died I'll be really upset.
