This a great RMOTHG trip. Did the scout hike today. There were many different types of wildflowers and amazing views. Was a great hike. We will be above tree line for approx half the hike. It felt good to be on a summer-like hike (see below).

We will meet at the Coors Tech lot, east of the AMC or CMC building. The meeting time is 620 with a departure time of 630. The trailhead is the Fourth of July Trailhead. The last 4 miles of the drive is a rough dirt road. A typical SUV of Subaru can make the drive. But would not advise a sedan do this drive. The drive time is an 1 hour and 15 minutes. 

The trail was very passable. However, there were occasionally fields or patches of snow. So we walked across patches of snow with very infrequent postholing. The trail had some water on it for a part of the trip. The water was typically less than 2 inches deep. So solid boots, an extra pair of socks, and a second set of shoes (for the trip home) are strongly advised. The ground was decomposed granite, so mud was not a real issue. There are a few water crossings, but it was a crossing of rock hopping for the most part.

What to bring - sun protection, rain gear, extra socks, second pair of shoes and a great attitude!!

On the way home we will stop at the Wondervu Resturant, chocolate and mexican food. Great combo!!! Mileage is 80x30 = $24 per car.
