Great weather for a hike. Hiked from Lone Pine T.H. to Amethyst Trail that connects with Browns Peak Summit Trail. Found trail for the last 0.5 mile or so to Browns Peak trail difficult to follow. Checked for water just above Jacks Spring where I usually find water but didnt see any. Camped overnight near junction of Amethyst Trail #253 and Arizona Trail. A little chilly towards morning but not too bad as the night stayed breezy.

Great weekend for an overnight trip along Four Peaks. Found some bear sign but no bears. Upper 50's early morning and upper 70's to low 80's during the day. Great night for seeing LOTS of stars! Great to see the forest coming back as well. Trail 253 has been overgrown for awhile but it looks like someone made some attempt to clear the trail up to about the 6400 foot level. I added my own touches of cairns and posts to guide the way through some of the down timber.

I have visited Jack Spring before both in April and September and have always found water at or just above the actual spring although the water may not be truly flowing I have found a few puddles of freshwater however this visit I couldnt locate the small puddles but I may have just missed them as I was in a hurry. No water found this visit.
