one of the best trips of the year!
powers spring is stagnant, i had to filter with a PUR hiker pro and -then- treat with micropur tablets to enhance the flavor
this loop was longer than standard and had plenty of leg-burning for all of us. we did Kennedy peak for a total of 21.75 miles and 4400 feet AEG.
ran into some kid at the trailhead who was from california and was going to attempt this trip in tennis shoes
good luck with that!
