Additional information coming close to the Hike.


This is one of my first and favorite Backpacking trips.

That trail is just amazing. We can expect a lot of solitude and views.

The trip is 2 nights. Day 1 we'll hike about 10 miles in the valley and set up camp.

Day 2 we will day hike the area (towards Stuart pass, weather and trail conditions permitting)
