Cool & cloudy again this morning, although it didn't feel quite as cool as yesterday morning. Headed up Lost Mine trail, no breeze again on that one. At the top, where it meets National, I went to the top of the little peak immediately to the west, marked as 2484 on topo maps. Nice views from up there, and I could again see the faint trail below leading to the mine on the north side of National that I've been wanting to get to the for last few months.

When I got back down, I was able to follow that little trail this time, and it led directly to the mine. It went back about twenty feet, and since the rock looked pretty stable, I decided to look inside. There was something (supplies?) wrapped in black plastic, and some poles wrapped in some sort of canvas or tarp material; deliberately placed back here, not discarded, so I left it alone. I wish I had known about this mine last fall when I got caught on that nasty storm at this spot on National, this mine would have been the perfect safe place to have waited it out.

Once back up on National, I went over to Goat Hill--no bugs today--then continued around and over to Pyramid and back down. Only saw seven people today, mostly on Pyramid. Very muggy, but the clouds kept it nice enough.
