Out and back to Upper La Barge Box with Kevin, from NE. Turns out this was his longest hike ever.
Gorgeous day. Plenty of sunshine and clear blue skies. It was nice to see (and hear) running water in La Barge Canyon. We passed several deep pools that looked inviting. Backpackers were taking advantage. We passed two who were on their way out and eight more who were on their way in as we were heading out, all on the Whiskey Spring trail. We saw just two hikers. We met them at the junction of Dutchman and Coffee Flat. They were returning from Reed's Water. They said there was lots of water there, too.
It felt warm on the way back. It was frigid just a week ago. Short winter. Not that I'm complaining. I thought it was just about perfect. Another gorgeous day in paradise!
p.s. The trails were just about perfect, too. A 16 mile hike in the Supes with just a couple of nothing scratches is a win.
