1st trip
John mentioned the Eastern Supes as a possible over night destination and me being a little partial to that area immediately suggested a nice little lasso loop out of Miles TH to Reavis Ranch and back. I chose a route that I thought would provide a nice intro to the Eastern Supes for John and cover some of the nicest country out there in my opinion.

The route and trip did not disappoint. There is still water everywhere, we were the beneficiaries of a very thorough trail maintenance project on the lower half of Campaign Creek and ended up with a superb campsite at the junction of a strong flowing Pine Creek and Reavis Gap.

Our hike out Sunday seemed to go by pretty quick we were at the TH by 1:30 and covered the final 14 miles in just under six hours.

Turned out to be a real nice over night trek. John seemed satisfied with his first real trip to the Eastern Supes and I was happy to finally get somebody out there with me. It was nice to get on the trails with 9L again and I appreciate his stern discipline in keeping Cup and Blanco in line for most of the weekend. When John is pulling up the six its all business for Cup and Blanco no stopping and sniffing, no stopping period and no distractions ;)
