Abbott Butte from the Yellow Jacket Trailhead 7-10-13

Beautiful sunny day with highs in the 70s. On the drive to the TH we found the yellow gate on FS 700 to be locked, so we backed up and took FS 500 up to where it meets FS 700 near the TH. FS 500 is in OK shape although we had to move some small downed trees in places. Turns out that there is a bridge out on FS 700 and the Forest Service is undecided about repairing or replacing it according to the Prospect Ranger.

Wildflowers were out in profusion. We didn't confuse Shasta and McLoughlin today although we did have some spirited discussion about Thielsen, Bailey and Crater Rim. In the end we had it all sorted out correctly.

We had a bit of a tailgate party when we got back to the TH.
