NCT Saturday hike

With moderate weather and no rain forecasted on Saturday, my pack headed out to hike a section just east of ours on Gardner RD.  A hiker we met a few weeks ago (two posts earlier) had said many trees had fallen across it so we thought we'd check that out, plus we'd not seen this section before anyway. Maybe they do need to hike more, while doing less trail work?
We parked on FR 1100.

Let's go!

There were several nice creeks on this stretch.

Oh dear, this path was mowed but
kinda narrow...I was engulfed!

There were some nice stretches of cedar and hemlock.

Ahhh, another cooling stop.

Here you can see the bank washed out a tree with an NCT marker.


We checked out FR 884. Today, it is actually the
trail, not a bypass, until the re-route on
 this side of the river is completed.

Someone mowed the road - THANKS!

And we seen someone along the trail! 
Oh and he was friendly too!!

Turns out Brett does contract work for the
Ottawa and knows many of our friends. 
I romped with his friendly pup some

We put up some markers on our way out, to
give hikers confidence they are on the right trail.

We did spy some trees across the trail, but not all that many.

The fungus among us.

We saw just a few paint blazes, but the
trail was very well marked with
plastic blazes of various vintage.
All in all, a great day on the trail!
