    Nice pics and descriptions Rob. Do you have a gpx file that I can use to follow your route?!? I want to visit some of the areas you visited such as the flume, mining ruins and the old cabin… among other things.

    We’re planning on doing this hike on Friday (11/11/16).

    Thanks in advance.
