|The middle peak is Sphinx Mountain.|
The correct trail was just as muddy as the first. They all appeared to be heavily used by horses and recently too with all the elk hunting. We walked along the edge of the riches most of the way through woods and across small meadows. There wasn’t always room on the top edge of the ditch, so we were often walking and sliding along the inside banks.
Back on the trail!
|This was supposed to be of me and Jeremiah, but taking group selfies while tripping over rocks and slipping in mud ...|
it's tough. :P
|Love you muchly.|
A couple hills later, we stopped again. This time Joshua said he could probably only make it back to the car without serious blistering. We got out some lunch and check our miles in and maps. We were about 2 miles in. Jeremiah knew there was no way we could get to the pass and back wight he amount of daylight we had left, but was hoping we could at least get to the cleaning 4 miles in for a good view.
|Looks like somebody took after this with an ax! Stubborn. Until the guy with the saw came along!|
