Tuesday on Del Norte Peak Photos
By popular request, we went up Del Norte Peak, stood or sat in the sprinkles on top as we watched 8 elk (1 bull and 7 cows that required an embarrassing explanation). We picked out the Hutson home and asked Lisa to look for us. Apparently our camouflage was effective.
This group hiked quickly, so the sprinkle we got on top (no lightning or thunder) was timed nicely. We got down rather rapidly and were home by 2 p.m. It was nice to have Regina with us again--she's a prepared lowlander.
Thursday hike--Trout Creek Trail--about 4 miles from where we park, then return on same trail. Meet by 9 a.m. at SF Visitor Center. Although this mountain trail has its ups and downs, it is not difficult. New folks are welcome. Bring lunch or a snack, rain gear and maybe something orange on top.
