Sun. 8-4-02

Today we had two ridges to cross.  The first from Jack Main Canyon to Stubblefield Canyon, and the second to Kerrick Canyon.  We made it, in good shape too, before 4pm!  Some good views today, although most of the trail was in the trees.


Weather was great!  Clouds from last night broke by 10pm, and just a few clouds today.  Water continues to be scarce—Tilden Canyon Creek just had some puddles in it, which we filtered out of.  Ranchiera Creek is not running too high here either!


Tomorrow’s goal is Benson Lake—7.5 miles.
