1st trip
I haven't hiked for a while (not done a real trail for a year or so). That being said, Rob and I thought going to Bell Pass from the Gateway Access Trailhead would be a good, challenging hike. (Anyone guess where this post is going?)

We met at 7:00 a.m. at the trailhead and headed out. The hike up wasn't so bad (not really bad at all). While we were at Bell Pass, a lithe Scandinavian (Rob thinks Russian) lady promoted going back to the trailhead via Windgate Pass. She said it was a more gradual descent and the extra mileage would be beautiful. I've been thinking about doing that loop for a long time, so, inexplicably, I said, "What the hell, let's do it."

Big mistake.

Without going into more embarrassing detail, I'll just say Rob ended up helping me out by carrying my pack from Windgate Pass and, later on, running more than 2.5 miles to my car to get water and granola bars for me. Rob is a stud. I walked down about 1.5 miles while he was on his mission of mercy and met him about a mile from our cars on Gateway Access Loop.

I think the fact that I brought four liters of water and half a dozen granola bars helped out a lot. However, my dearth of recent experience is pointed up by the facts that I forgot to put on a hat and decided against applying sunscreen in the parking lot because we were "only going to be out for a three hours or so."

Quite a harrowing day, but I'm glad I did it (since I'm OK). I've been in worse situations, but hadn't been in any really bad situations since 2010.

Thanks again to Rob for bringing a potentially very bad situation to a successful conclusion.

Just a quick in-and-out on the Lost Dog Wash Trail (clockwise) to the intersection with Ringtail Trail. This trek included a walk through the Kovach Family Nature Trail.

This is a good workout loop. By taking the western segment of Sunrise Trail where it intersects Ringtail Trail, you shorten the loop by about 3/4 mile, but it's still a great time out and about.

Great Sunday afternoon hike! It was good to get out! I usually go earlier or later, but this just seemed like a good time to go.

Great hike with ???. I wish I could remember who I went with. Daniel? Rob? I'll look into it and update this post.
