Headed out early Friday morning for a two nighter in Hells Hole. They are building a new bridge over Reynolds creek near the parking lot, but ranger Gary said it was cool to park by the heavy equipment. The trail is in excellent shape and looks heavily used since my last trip in March. The creek was very low at the first crossing, but I was able to sample a few leftover blackberries there. Continuing on and up from there I spooked a deer than dashed away, then 5 minutes later I saw another just off the trail. A big buck was just standing there, then I saw another, then they began to hoof the ground, then they did battle for 2 or 3 minutes. They didn't seem to even notice me. I made it to the end of the trail and found the campsites all empty. The water was very low and no trout to be caught on this trip. Had a good campsite after I cleaned up all of the trash others had left behind. I ended up packing 2.3 lbs of trash (weighed it when I got home) that was not mine. On the next trip hopefully I can carry out the old broken down tent someone left behind. Even still, after crossing the creek on the return trip, I found and confiscated no less than 5 empty plastic water bottles scattered along the trail that were not there on my hike in. What is with folks?
