|Some of the group of 20 on the trip today ready to set out.|
|...and they're off. Many hikers and many paces being set on the trip.|
|Lots of good sign information
about each of the trails at most junctions.
|Turned around one corner and way down there was a view of Clementine!|
|The limestone formation called Robber's Roost on the north shore of Lake Clementine has a colorful history from both the Native Americans and the outlaws who inhabited it later.|
|We cachers lagged behind to
make finds and then catch up to the group.
|Stopping for lunch was a high
point for many in the group!
|Mark, Kelly and friends
enjoying the quiet lunch break spot.
|From the high spot we could
see all the way to the Carson Pass area.
across the 730' Foresthill bridge was a (sic) highpoint of the hike.
Even for those of us who don't particular care for sudden heights.
|Pretty amazing views from up
here, and the fact that I released my deathgrip on the railing long
enough to get this shot.
|Looking back across the bridge
we just made our way over.
|Making our way down into the
canyon to finish up the hike.
