Winburn Camp 1-22-14

Photos and Tracks by Ron, Claudia and Dan

Temperatures were in the 40s, and it was a bright sunny day but without much direct sun on us as we hiked down into the watershed.

Because of the recent dry weather the ford of the West Fork of Ashland Creek was relatively easy. All boots remained dry.

The hike would have been uneventful except that one of the hikers walked past the lunch spot at Winburn Camp and continued heading south. We thought that the wayward hiker was behind us and that we would meet up with him on our way back. However, we got back to the TH without encountering him. After waiting a bit, and doing a quick search on Caterpillar, we started the ball rolling with a 911 call. After another 1/2 hour or so the unlost hiker was back in cell phone range and we were all quite relieved.

We have been taking for years about buying walkie talkies and today's excitement pushed us over the edge to decide to actually make the purchase.

We took refreshment at the Black Sheep.
