Great weekend camp/hike adventure driven primarily by great photosets on the HAZ home page. The motley crew included Gary, Chris P, John and Zane, Preston, and Meia and me. A lot had changed since those photosets with fires and flooding, but we found a nice spot not too far from the Lower Points.

Being restless, we half-attempted the Lower Points ruins on day one. If you take one thing from this triplog, it should be to heed Grasshopper's advice here: [ photo ] . Unfortunately, I didn't do enough homework beforehand and took that route. I feel fortunate to not have broken a leg at best, as it is extremely unstable. Short story is that by the time I got above the scree I just wanted to get back down safely and aborted the ruins. Foolish.

Day 2 was driving/hiking to Dupont Cabin. (John - sincere apologies for not voicing concerns for your vehicle sooner. Glad it all worked out...). Beautiful and peaceful cabin with no others to ruin the solitude. Then back down the hill for much deserved cocktails and dinner. Gary is always good for great beverages!

Woke up a touch hungover and hit the road to be home before Easter. We finally saw another party on the way out, and even then it was brief. Glad we were able to wedge this trip in before the holiday!
