Spring Hollow, 7 June, 2020

Six stalwart hikers met under cool, cloudy skies on Sunday morning.

Our original plan for a 10-mile Jardine Juniper hike seemed a little too risky based on the forecast of rain, snow and lightning as the day progressed.  We adjusted our goals down a little to a shorter hike in the Spring Hollow area.       

We worked our way up the old Spring Hollow trail to the "rock garden".  At that point the weather turned darker so rather continuing up, we turned off and headed down toward the Bridger Look Off Trail and then up the River Trail to complete the loop back to our cars.

We enjoyed beautiful flowers, misty skies and good conversation.

Trip Summary:
  • Six hikers, Kris, Jane, Dave W., Teresa, Dave P., Brent (leader)
  • Left Smiths at 8:05 and drove 7 miles to the Spring Hollow parking area. 
  • Started hiking at 8:25 and back at our cars around 11:00
  • 50 ºF, cloudy skies and periods of rain
  • Hiked 3.6 miles with 800 feet of ascent/descent

Thanks to Brent for the narrative and photos and Dave W. for photos and GPS data.
