    FANTABULOUS! Best fall color hiking of the season. I've enjoyed every minutes of the two for one hike. People were ever nicest bunch. I'm thrilled that I have met new & great people. And Becky, you have outdone yourself. Thank you!

    Today, Oct 1, a couple of us hiked this route. At about 2 miles there's the first stream crossing which caused about half the groups up there to give up and turn around. One guy fell in. The stream is full, and crossed only by a couple of thin logs. They aren't particularly stable and they flex. One was partly wet. Since the stream isn't all that deep, crossing with a long pole does work pretty well, but it isn't an easy crossing regardless. There were a couple of people who simply waded across.
    The best aspen is above this crossing. Aspen was at its prime, with a little green aspen and a lot of yellow.
    About 3/4 miles later, there's another stream crossing. This one has a nice big round stable log across. Above this there was still some nice aspen, but quite a bit of it has turned brown.
    We turned around at about the 3 mile mark.
