I had never hiked to Robber's Roost, and I persuaded Tracie, my intrepid hiking partner, to accompany me on this hike, even though she had done it a couple of times. I followed the route posted by hikerdw on 11-17-2018 -- we started and ended at the Peralta TH, and then we did a clockwise loop by coming up on Carney Springs Trail and going back on the Bluff Spring Trail.

We did not see anyone on the hike until we were past the Roost and got to Fremont Saddle. After that, there were a couple of people at Lonesome Pine, and then we saw a couple of small groups when we were on the Bluff Spring Trail not too far from the TH.

Robber's Roost was cool -- we spent some time there exploring some of the rocks, and climbed up through a chute -- Tracie called it a rabbit hole -- and looked at an arch and explored some more.

The views were awesome throughout this entire hike. For the most part I was able to follow the trails and the cairns, but hikerdw's GPS track bailed me out a few times!
