did another visit back to PA and took a trip up to my camp again outside of Ridgway. We did part of the Brush Hollow system 9+ years ago and I wanted to go back to do the rest of them. Dmitri is much bigger now and can hike farther, so the hike was much longer than it was then. When we hiked this before, it was July and the trails were really overgrown with waist high grass. This time, there was only one overgrown trail that was a small spur to a lookout vista.

the color in the leaves was very nice. The skies were overcast, which made for less spectacular photography, but it was still a very nice change of pace from the 100+ degrees hikes I've been doing for the last 3 months in AZ. It was a little chilly to start, but since we started much later than I normally do, it warmed up enough pretty quickly, which was still on the cool side.

I had planned to try to hike all the trails, but between the moderate brush in some sections and the elevation gain, we were hiking a little slow so I decided to cut it short a bit. I still managed to hike every section of trail that I hadn't previously hiked, so I accomplished that. By the time we were getting lunch, the rain had started, so it turned out to be a good thing that we cut it short.
