1st trip
Been thinking about this segment for quite a few years. Logistical nightmare. Came up with the idea of getting a shuttle ride at both ends. JJ and Janie volunteered to drive us to Rogers Trough and pick us up at Roosevelt Lake. Thanks to both of you!
JJ hiked with us for a few miles from Rogers Trough TH then had to return home to take care of some business.
This is a long tough segment, but rewarding in the end. We pushed hard the first day and made it to Cottonwood Spring just as it was getting dark. We found a pretty decent campsite, then set up camp and ate in the dark. Beautiful breezy evening.
Took our time breaking camp in the morning as we had plenty of time to only hike about 8 miles. The Cottonwood Creek area is really pretty with water access in numerous places. The cottonwoods and sycamores have new bright green leaves.
The final stretch has more AEG than anticipated and temps were rising. We pushed through and finished off the hike by working our way down to the lake for a refreshing dip.
Great trip. Thanks Kelly! :)
