A trip out to Lime Creek to visit some new areas. We had all sorts of options drawn up, to please a wide group of hikers. The Cabin for those that had not been there, numerous piles of rocks were waypointed (Thanks Oregonhiker), riparian areas, new canyons to explore, and peaks to bag.

On the way to the cabin we hit 3 Piles of Rocks, two of which I'd walked right past the first time to Lime Creek. There was a bit-o-color hanging on in spots in Lime Creek, but 2 weeks past prime for sure.

We dropped Kyle an Lilly off at the cabin to relax and went to Professor Canyon to do some 'splorin'. Some very sweet looking areas here, but we only went as far as the lush riparian area of Professor Spring. I'd like to take this to the top on a future trip.

On the way back to the Cabin to pick up Kyle and Lilly, the others started barking to get Lilly excited. We were shocked when around the corner came a dog that wasn't Lilly. It was one of about 8 dogs that two Lion Hunters were running. The dogs were all equipped with GPS collars and "reminder" collars (Which I got to see in action).

We stopped back at the Cabin and had a nice conversation with these two Cowboys.

After this it was the Slog back up the hill to the truck.

We took the short drive up to Humboldt to check out the scenery. Well worth the drive if you are in the area. Thanks for driving Chums... a fun day

Never seen water in this area. Water in the creek bed was probably from recent rains.
