|Parking/Access Road Notes:
||Our group consisted of two cars. both of witch were broken into and our money was taken from us. Nothing else of value (including a laptop, car gps, and credit cards) was taken. we almost thought we had just lost our money but soon realized that we had been robbed! When filing a police report we were asked to check our passenger side doors for sign of entry. sure enough we both found scratches at the top of our doors from what ever he/she used to get in.
Thank you scum bag for remembering to re-lock our doors after steeling form us.
||Dry Trail, Mud - Minor/Avoidable |
|Water Crossing Notes:
||All crossings were easily manageable. |
|Trail Maintenance Notes:
||Trail was in great shape! |
||This is a very challenging trail for dogs.In my opinion this should not be attempted by a pup that has not had time to build up their trail paws. If you are planning this trip keep in mind water is unattainable past shining rock. You wont see water again until the hut. My very trail worthy four legged friend has never slept so long as after this hike. |
||None issue most likely due to the high wind. |
|Lost and Found:
||Cash from my friends car as well as my car.
Two winter hats and gloves were in the trail just above the Hut. ||
||This was an absolutely beautiful day for a hike. The wind across the ridge was almost as impressing as the view. The folks at the greenleaf hut are very hospitable and just plain nice.|
The Lincoln police say they are very interested in any help they can get catching this dirt bag. They said the Lafayette trail head and Flume gorge parking area are especially active brake in areas. Also, the only target thus far seems to be cash.
Keep having fun and look out over each other.
