Looking for Schrader Creek on Tuesday, May 20, 2014

Six of the bold did look for Schrader Creek--unvisited by any of us until this trip.  We even saw the moon overhead (of David in #1) and a broad swath of mountain land covered with piñon pine and Rocky Mountain Juniper.
We found Schrader Creek; we search for fish with no success.  The creek looks good and very pleasant. The day was perfect for walking--even for climbing up the breath-taking "short-cut" hill.  And we walked less than 5 miles and felt that we were conditioning ourselves quite well, thank you.
Remember the next chance is at 9 a.m. on Thursday.  Meet Dennis Shepherd at the South Fork Visitor Center, ready to leave by 9.00 a.m. You'll visit the woods around Million Reservoir, near South Fork.    Then look forward to Monday (relatively easy hike) and Tuesday (a little tougher hike).
Welcome back summer hikers--you are welcome to go with us.
