1st trip
Nice Figure-8 loop:
Down Aspen 93
Down Marshall Gulch 3
Up Aspen 93
Sidetrip to Marshall Peak
Down WOR 44
Up Lemmon 5

Other plans got postponed, and I was able to make a big event hike that I'd previously declined, but wasn't ready for the actual big part of it. But I did some math and figured I could make a worthwhile day out of things and still meet up with the group of hardcore crazy people.

I arrived a little bit early and subsequently had time to create some rock art, and just a few minutes before I was going to head up in an attempt to beat the setting sun, the rest of the group arrived on their climb from Romero Pass. We all enjoyed a short break before setting off on the final few miles back to the summit where our cars awaited along with a few more people and celebratory beverages. It dropped to 39 as I passed the ski area, but was back to 70 once we arrived back on the valley floor.

I love WOR, and the upper part of Lemmon #5 was new to me, and quite enjoyable. Aspen was a burned mess and not that great. Marshall Gulch was a surprising treat. Marshall Peak is an overgrown prickly mess.

Can't say anything about the spring proper, but all of Marshall Gulch was flowing nicely, from the top down to the trailhead.
