Fabulous hike today with Carl.

We went up Change Creek to J’s Landing, took the trail that connects J’s with the service road at 3,400 feet (not much of a road at that point, actually) then went all the way around the Hall Creek Gorge, descending via Zig Zag.

A few sections were pretty brushy but it could have been worse. Someone had trimmed back some of the worst sections since Derek and I were up there a few weeks ago. However, the bushes have grown energetically since then as well.

About 7 miles, 2,700 feet of gain (most in the first 2 miles), almost 4.5 hours, a terrific hike and workout with Carl, who had not done this hike before and enjoyed it immensely.
