Ha…. small world. We got to FC Camp at 10:00am. Don’t remember seeing anyone else on the way up.
Agreed… that tree was the worst one we saw on this trail. Only thing that made it marginally sketchy (besides trying to navigate through it with a dog attached to me) was the loose soil on the downhill side. My son made it pretty much a straight shot. I took the low road (dog went under the branches).
If you ever see a very young-looking 52 year old 😀 with a leashed husky on the trail, feel free to say hi. I’ve used your website/ caltopo and other information many times over the years and would love to say thanks in person.
