We hiked more than seven miles in the MTRP

Wheeuuw! What a day! We started out hiking to Duncans! "Flagman's Cache" on the east side of the MTRP, parking on Barker Way. Before yesterday, I didn't know there was a "Barker Way." I just thought that was the name of the trail I had seen while hiking up to Cowles Mountain.

After we found the cache and examined the great contents of the huge ammo can, we hiked back down the trail to the car then headed off to the nearest Starbuck's where we could cash in the Starbuck's card Duncan! had left in the cache as the FTF prize, which no one had taken yet. After refueling our caffeine level, we drove around to the other side of the MTRP and hiked to several other caches, making it all the way to the top of both North and South Fortuna.

It was very hazy and the very few pictures I took did not turn out, so this image of our tracks and the caches we found will have to suffice as the "Visual Aid."

Even though I couldn't get good pictures, it was a spectacular day for such long hikes. In the morning there were little puffy clouds in the sky to add interest to the hazy blue and in the afternoon some interesting high strato cirrus clouds portended the arrival of a change in the weather that is due this weekend.

I created a Magnalog of the longest hike of the day at the Magnalog Site.

The static image looks like this:
