Spent the night about 2 miles from the TH in the "hunters' meadow" to a boatload of stars, great milky way. In the morning my partner in crime, sredfield, and I drove to the now for sure 4X4 TH, just a short part of the road, to hike to Bassett. A two fold purpose for me, to see how the road was and possible campspots for a fall hike planned, and seeing if indeed there is a trail off the top of Bassett leading to Jackson Cabin.

The weather was rather strange with rapidly moving thick clouds and Bassett was fogged in; unusual. Very humid with a cool to cold wind, hard to figure out how to dress. The normal slog up the canyon, make the turn at the Aspen grove, and climb out to high desert terrain, and tremendous views. The canyon was beautiful and green. We did not for sure find the trail but what we saw was promising and a little confusing. The trail past the peak itself was easy to follow and overall in good shape. The clouds and sun made for surreal vistas. Really enjoyed it today. Will be back in November.
