1st trip
We invaded HAZ Camp at around 8:30, to find quite a few HAZers still Sleeping.
We were greeted by Angela, Pam, Trish, Cindy, Corry, OregonHiker, (all of whom I was meeting for the first time)....and rolling out of the Coleman Mansion with Chinese eyes, Todd.

Corry decided he wanted to tag along for the tour of the East loop, so we were off.

This is a pleasant hike with Pines, Oak, Maple, Aspens, Ferns. Our Clockwise loop took us past numerous springs and cabins in various states of disrepair. My favorite areas on the hike were the Barbershop spring area, the Fern Forests on the Houston Brothers Trail, Barbershop canyon, and the cold, refreshing water of Dane Spring.

On the way up to Pinchot Cabin, we ran into Chumley, Liz, and Oregonhiker. A little later we ran into Laura hiking Solo and then later again, south of Dane Spring, Steve (Nonot).

I stopped back at camp to wet my liver (Thanks Liz!)for a short while and jab with the folks. I was even allowed to view, touch, and sample Angela's Treasure chest of snacks!

Good to meet all the new people and catch up with the others I have not seen in awhile.

Good Hiking with you Corry... keep up the good work!.
JBM was at an all time low. Approaching 0 (and actually going positive for a short while) at the beginning of the hike.
