13.5 miles of hiking • 1500' elevation gain • 1 night
Here to do trail maintenance for ONDA. 3 creek crossings between miles 2 and 3. Fast and swift. 2 of them mid thigh deep. We crossed in our underwear and sandals. Camped around 6900 ft under some big cottonwoods, in view of the headwall-gorgeous! We got hailed and snowed on overnight and awoke to a light snow fall. Had planned to do trail maintenance further up, but conditions seemed worse at higher elvations, so we packed up and headed out, bummer. More hail, streams a bit deeper and faster.
