Route Scout GPS Route Recorded on Route Scout View
Parked at the Isabella TH because the road to the start of Dandrea was blocked by a box van delivering construction materials. Not a problem, since the kids like walking through Potato Patch. Once on the trail, we quickly started heading uphill, passing a small snake near the trailhead. Uneventful hike up, and the cool temps and strong breeze felt great.

At the saddle, we headed east on Yankee Doodle over towards Mt Davis. We took kind of a crap route at the beginning of the offtrail, but once we got past the fence, we stayed on a better route. Very breezy at the top, and the kids were actually cold. Nice views, and plenty of rocks to sit on and rest. We took a much better route back down, then headed back over to the saddle, then continued southwest towards Union.

The kids played with a horned lizard they found along the way. Breezes were mostly blocked on the way up, so it felt a little warm. We stayed on the trail that skirts the east side of Union on the way up, seeing two deer near the top. Snack break at the fire tower while we tried to avoid the hundreds of ladybugs. On the way down, we stayed on the road a little longer and took a shortcut back down to the trail.

Easy hike back down Dandrea, although a little rocky on the upper half. Nice to spend a day in cooler temps.
