1st trip
ray invited john and i to do this loop sunday
several other haz members have done it, and it's always looked interesting
got going around 8:00
went clockwise, a pleasant stroll along lynx lake first, then a short bit on hilltop
homestead rolled through ponderosa and oak forest
smith ravine went through an old burn for a mile or so, but even that offered good views and a breeze
the upper part was also through forest, and toward the top, we stopped for a coffee break
john had brought his backpacking stove and home roasted coffee and fired it up for an excellent cuppa
:) delicious!
topped out on spruce mountain road and followed that north for a mile or so
more enjoyable road walking than anticipated
next was watershed trail, which started out a little rocky but was partially in shaded woods
finished on seven mile gulch, which has been everyone's least favorite part
didn't care for the steep scree slides, but there were still good views
conclusion: counterclockwise - get an exposed climb on crappy footing done early
nice to hike in shady woods on new trails with the boys!
