    Been to Blind Lake about a half dozen times, not a good Hang area. Just saying. Very Limited.

    Possible....but with the 1 night limit, camping fees and logistics, maybe just heading to 10,000 acre Hoist Lakes near Glennie, might be a better option.
    Haven't been there in a couple years, but it wouldn't be a bad place to go. Nice hiking trails and lots of options for camping. The view from campsite on the hill at the south side of Bryon Lake was quite nice. Just tossing out ideas...

    So.... when is the next trip?

    Since the unofficial spring hike and hang is behind us, and as a result I've already purchased a set of ultralight crampons... what are the collective groups thought about a spring hang that feels a little more like spring.

    It's been two days, and I don't have a planned trip on the calendar to look forward to.

    Anthony and I are planning on Jordan River Pathway on the weekend of April 19. It's a good 2 day trip. 18 miles of fun with one sweet hill to begin day 2

    peace

    I've often thought about this trip and wondered if going the other way would be better. Watch out for the boy scouts and their cherry picking.

    JRT is great! There a quite a few wicked hills. I personally wouldn't plan on staying at the "campground" there are a couple of good stealth sites there.

    I think I have a vid on the "troop" page of our trip to there that Vulture, Boudah, Lerms and I took a few years back.
    Its a proven fact that 78.4% of all statstics are made up on the spot.
