Thank you much for getting back to me! This is great information. Yes, I think we will depend on Limbre pine and High creek for water. Thats perfect!
Like a said above, I will have the gps to guide us, but am I okay to assume that visually spotting the peaks is pretty easy? Reading the topo it seems like they will be pretty dominant along the trail.
Oh and thank you for the new term, perennial, not going to lie, had to look that one up to be sure I was taking it in the right context! 🙂
