Wow that's a great trip! Thanks for the pics, man. I've been to Sturtevant Falls one time, but just turned back and went back home right after though. I didn't know there was a lot more cool sight seeing in that area. Gonna check those trails out next time.
My friends and I usually go the opposite direction of Sturtevant, to Hermit Falls, where you can cliff jump into the water. Two pools to jump into, a 20 footer and a 40. Good one to go to in the warmer months.
Hiking up on the way back always bums me out though. haha
Awesome report and captions for the pics. Totally different than Florida. We may have an elevation change of 20 feet if lucky. Keep them coming so I can live vicariouslly thru you.
There are quite a few trails from the Chantry trailhead. Next time, we are planning on camping at Spruce then hike to Mt. Wilson then maybe explore other trails in the area. All good well maintained trails and emergency call boxes everywhere. You should come out with us sometime...plenty of trees to hang
Thanks for taking the time to take pictures and write up a trip report. I read it before work yesterday and found that I ran out of time and had to continue today. Thanks again for the look into your part of the world. You got some great looking country.

That is beautiful country. Appreciate your taking us along!
