      There's hardly any water to cross and the elevation change is a few hundred feet, so that's probably OK. If we get any more precip before Saturday then...?

    Be careful, as the original Mine Trail closed about a year ago. If you head to Roomy Mine, it will require a longer hike out than previously, but one of the routes on Ball Mountain includes new view points!
