Trip Report

As I started my annual week off in late September 2017, I didn't know what I was in the mood for. The weather wasn't fabulous, but it wasn't horrible either. Being solo, I didn't really feel like a huge day - not to mention Phil Richards and I had some pretty big plans for later in the week and I didn't want to ruin those with too big a day already on Monday. Of course, being September, I wanted larches to be part of the landscape.
