This hike has it all. Very special place. Good thing it is so remote or it would likely be overrun with visitors. Refreshing to see man-made structures respected not vandalized. Saw three backpackers on their way out as we were coming in, otherwise nobody else around. Unbelievable amounts of bear scat on the trails. Didn't make it to the shootout cabin, mine, or Kennedy Peak because of time and snow. Good reasons to return someday. Thanks John for including me in your adventure.
