We are continuing our exploration of the Lost Creek Wilderness, going west on CO Trail Segment 4.  We will be climbing mostly upward about 6.88 miles, on the way to the ridge high point at about 10,650' elevation.  Our lunch spot is about 50 yards north from that spot and visible from the trail, in a small knob of boulders. This portion of the CT passes by the top of the Payne Creek Trail.
