Sardine Canyon, 14 May, 2022
Fourteen hikers and one dog set out Saturday morning to explore the Old Sardine Road. This hike allowed us to explore some ancient history (fossils), and some not so ancient history (a USGS marker and the road itself).
Along the way we observed and discussed the Mount Pisgah Road, evidence of a slide which created Dry Lake in what we now incorrectly refer to as Sardine Canyon which is really Wellsville Canyon, and what we believe to be some old wagon tracks.
We chose this as a spring hike to avoid the possibility of mud and soft conditions at higher elevations. Several people also suggested that this would be a good fall hike to see the changing colors.
Thanks to Brent for the narrative and photos, Jo, Jane and Susan for photos and Dave W. for GPS data.
