Did the Joe Denny Mingus figure eight loops. Thanks for the idea! We saw four wild turkeys along 104 on the drive in and later we heard two more rafters but didn't see them.
[Note to Bruce who said this area was quiet: There were about 15 cars at the TH and all the trails were very crowded ]
We did the south loop first then I added the north loop. Down Gaddes Canyon TR and Gaddes Canyon Two TR - I really liked the Gaddes Canyon trails except for all the bear scat . Next it was up Coleman we had lunch at the top of Coleman out at the edge off the trail. Wow!
Back at the start I took off to do the other loop down View Point TR. I saw one hang glider. Final push is up Mingus and North Mingus a few tiny patches of snow near the top Then an easy trip along the top past the hang glider "runway". Some great views from that north side. Enjoyed this trip with some autumn colors and great views.
