Went on a site survey; got destroyed by chiggers n ticks more than I ever have on any single hike. Land owners were clear cutters. Awful.

The red was looking great yesterday. Wish I had time to go to Muir today.

Hang Em High Horse Camp, or White Oak Boat in; north a bit from there near Horse Lick Creek is the S-tree primitive camps, it's actually quite nice.
If you want large, then of course you're back to state park and lake campgrounds.

Auxier Ridge In The Mist
« on: May 06, 2019, 02:19:22 PM »

Some pics of my hike yesterday morning (Cinco de Mayo) in the Auxier Ridge/Courthouse Rock area. I don't know about you all, but I can just sit and stare at Gorge photos when I'm not there, and I can feel the Gorge. And then I must prepare to get out and go hiking again...

Heavy Erosion From the 3000 Acre Fire of 2010 (this area used to have two feet of rich soil and many 90+ year-old pines previous to the big fire) A fresh canvas to immortalize our visits!!  >:(:

Nice photos, did you see many people?

I was on Osbourne Ridge today (5/6) and ran into about 10 people which really surprised me. It looked like Copperas Creek was full of people, so I did not wander that way. Beautiful hiking weather the last couple of days.

Thanks! Glad you like the pics.
In 7.5 miles and over the span of 5 hours (I stop to take a lot of pictures) I saw about a dozen people and two happy dogs. Having a light rain to start the day, and after the previous night's Derby parties, I assume was the reason why Auxier Ridge and Courthouse Rock trails were relatively unpopulated. I usually prefer to hike the Gorge mid-week, but I wanted to experience the fog and mist. It was perfect.   :D

As always, stunning pictures.  It is the artist, not the camera.

Once again, genes, I deeply appreciate your thoughts...

The abundance and diversity of life, the sounds, the silence and the weather/micro-climates of the forest are my peculiar muses of influence.

The downside: My parents always "critiqued" my photos because I rarely have people in them.

Thanks for looking, I'm really happy you enjoy them.
