Comments: What a day! Finally hiked Huntingon Ravine with Priscilla and Keith - great fun times with fun friends, this trail not for people afraid of exposure, but tons of hand and foot holds throughout the trail. We then took Alpine garden (some nice purple flowers out right now) over to Southside and then parted ways with my friends. I followed Westside, getting some sweet cog pictures over to Gulfside, to Six Husbands, down to Edmand col cutoff (some loose rocks) then down Castle Ravine trail (more loose rocks) some water running on parts of the trail, the landslide area is easy to navigate with fresh blazes, tons of water crossings, but all were pretty easy except the last one.......didn't care, in I went, shoes and all, get me to my car! Excellent day of redlining and enjoying the above treeline views galore! Lots of people out and about. Big smiles :)
