This is a nice big loop. Went CCW. Had never been in to Marsh Valley before. What a beautiful area! Loved it! Lots of water and big trees. Many great camp sites. Big cliff faces. Nice and remote. Saw folks on the way in and also on the way out but had the whole place from west of Bull Pass to well up the Second Water trail all to myself on a beautiful Sunday. Saw a gopher snake and two monsters. Got close enough to one for it to hiss and begin to move in my direction. Backed me right down and I had to go well around it on the trail. Considered scampering up Black Top Mesa from Bull Pass but opted to leave it for another time. I may regret that choice since the approach is long from any direction. Not to worry. I will be back.
