After a 5 year absence by me, I figured it was a good time to re-visit this trail and a 2 for 1 cap/cache combo was all the incentive I needed. With a new cap to be found, it was easy to convince BVPete to tag along today and make this our weekly outing. The hike up to the south summit was quite pleasant. There was only minor steep sections and the trail pretty easy to follow. Once we hit the reserve fence, we just followed the fence line all the way to the cap. There was about 4 minor reversals to deal with, but they weren't as bad as they looked and the snow was packed well enough thanks to a previous moose visitation. The area of the cap/cache is quite terrific. The views today were marginal, but I've been up enough of the ridges in this area to know what I was missing today. Even with the weather today, they were pretty good. It's a really open spot to see some nice panoramas. We did our due diligence with the cap and were soon headed back the way we came. I had thoughts of visiting a nearby, unfound by me, puzzle during the return trek. At one point, I swear it was calling out to me , but it was just out of my range for today. That will be the subject of my next visit! Thanks for a wonderful cap outing OFTH! BVPete and I had a terrific time visiting this one today!
