I hadn't been up Carney or to the Roost in over a year so when Linda got the afternoon free and with the forecast looking great, we made the climb. Luckily we had clouds and a pretty nice breeze all the way up because it was kicking my butt! While I was busy panting, Linda spotted a lone Big Horn below the lower saddle. He posed on some boulders before wandering off. Somehow with all my stops we still made it to the upper saddle in under two hours from Lost Goldmine TH.

We decided the area from the upper saddle to the Roost has to be one of the coolest places around! Pine trees, hoodoos and pure Supes beauty! I would love to spend a couple days up there to explore off-trail places.

We had fun checking out the Roost, then headed over to have a look across Peralta at the Cave Trail before heading up past the surf board and over to Fremont. We made good time to Fremont and wondered why that well-marked and worn trail doesn't have a proper name?

Amazingly we saw nobody at Fremont! And other than four people out on the Ridgeline, we didn't see anybody else all day! It had been awhile since I was on the Cave Trail so Linda got to lead the way. It was fun acting concerned that we were gonna get lost! :D Below the bathtub we followed some cairns east that looked like they lead down into Barks. We decided to save that route for another day and made our way down Cave Trail. We kept looking across the canyon in amazement at the hoodoos by the Roost where we had come from.

No snakes, no people! Cloudy and breezy! Another great day in the Supes!
