Along the drive on FR422 all the way out to Edwards Park we saw many vehicles and campsites but we were lucky enough to be totally alone where we planned to camp Saturday night, a few hundred feet from where the Sycamore Trail was supposed to be.

Our hike plan was to follow Sycamore Trail #68 down to the designated TH then back up. But after following the HAZbot GPS route for the trail we zig-zagged back and forth for almost two miles before giving up on locating it. We could only guess it was wiped out by fire some time back but even then you'd think a cairn or two might have survived. But no... there was NOTHING to be found, no old cairns, not even a hint of an old trail. So much for the Sycamore Trail.

Ok, change of plan... and we swung north along the ridge toward Edwards Peak to make a loop back to our campsite. The hope was to encounter a deer or elk, which I did in droves back in February 2012 but this time we saw nothing. A few 2-3 day-old deer tracks but nothing more recent.

It turned out to be a short hike but this was to be a relaxing weekend. It also meant we had time to catch on reading... I've renewed the library books over and over so it was time to finish them.

Nothing moving worthy of a video so just a small photoset this time.
