After work hike. Started at the new trailhead/gate on Elden Lookout Road at 7500 feet. Went up the canyon using the lookout road, and then turned onto Upper Oldham Trail. Lots of flood damage on the bottom quarter mile of Upper Oldham. Not hard to follow though, and a good workout as always. At the top I walked Sunset Trail and the lookout road up to the summit of Mount Elden. Lots of pink traffic cone-like things protecting newly planted baby fir trees along Sunset Trail, made me happy to see that. Sunset on Elden was a beautiful sight featuring every color of the rainbow. Stood under the fire tower for a moment in the chilly winds and golden light and then made my retreat. Finished well after dark.
