Sandy had Tuesday off and it rained! After it cleared that afternoon, we headed south to hike more of the NCT we'd not seen before.
|We parked on NFS road 2270.|
Parking lots should be mowed and cleared of debris.
|A skeleton tree?|
|We went west and hoped to hike to where we had|
started at a month ago.
|Gromit's glad to see painted blazes.|
|A cool stream to rest in.|
|This corner may need to be marked as such.|
In fact a few here needed corner blazing.
|Water dogs do like to run in it.|
|A hiker register box! We had no idea it was out here.|
|I smelled a strange red fungus here!|
|Another creek! I love this section!|
|We continued west on the forest road from here.|
This parking lot needed signage and whacking.
|The FS road had no blazes except this one where we turned off.|
Branches may need to be trimmed back!
|This section had much logging debris left on the trail.|
|We didn't know which way to go here.|
|More blazes that needed lopping to be seen.|
On this section we found very few blazes in general and hard to follow.
|More trees across it.|
|Out the other end!|
The remaining photos are from the return trip.
|Hummmmm this blaze is not facing hikers.|
|I think we need a sawyer out here.|
|This section was pretty well marked.|
|We made it back. Trail mutts are glad to get out at all!|
