Joe and I were continuing our BCT trek. Chris @Darthstiller is also working on the BCT so he joined. Chris tricked Wally @wallyfrack by telling him they were going to the Supes today. By the time it was light out, it was too late for him to bail.

We dropped the Stiller mobile at the Orme Rd TH, and drove back down to the Big Bug TH to start in the breezy 39 degree temps.

The standout feature for the first part of this hike is Copper Mountain. There is nothing spectacular on this hike, but with the clear skies, the views were expansive. Wally even saw Mt. Ord. :-k

The highlight for me was the Russian Well area. There are the remains of an old stone building and plenty of water in the windmill fed trough. (You may need to share it with #42).

A large portion of the final 4 miles of this trail have been very recently rerouted off of the two track. Plenty of switchbacks now.

We saw 4 hikers and surprisingly 0 MTB'ers.

Great to hike w/ Wally and Chris again. (Joe too)
