Backpack w/ kiddos and grandpa! Drive out was probably a bit more than my 2WD Jeep Renegade should handle (spun out a few times climbing the hills), so grandpa in a separate truck as a backup plan was appreciated. Made it to Rogers Trough TH by 5PM, quickly packed up and headed down with the ambitious goal of Angel Basin for the night. This wasn't in the cards (littlest had the biggest feelings) and we stopped after 3 miles at a familiar campsite. There was a trickle of water in the creek (really, there was a trickle in the creek for more than 2/3 of the length we saw) and grandpa quickly gathered enough firewood to keep the cold evening temps at bay. Tried something new - we each cowboy camped with bug nets - and it worked okay? Kids struggled getting changed inside the sleeping bags.

I was the only one who got cold during the night (30F bag) and we were slow in the morning, breaking camp at 8AM. Light packs made for easy hiking. After scouting out the ruins I only felt comfortable bringing the oldest up, so the two of us explored the ruins while the rest of the group snacked in the shade. We stayed in the creek on the return and got back to camp at 11AM. Longer break to water up before the warm climb out, getting back to the TH at 3PM. One of my tires had picked up a nail and a slow leak from the day before, so we took it easy on the return. Only saw one other group out there.

Trail is in okay shape, lots of growth (and flowers!) out there. Water was a very welcome sight, I only hauled 2L and filtered frequently to keep the group hydrated.
