Sterling Mine Ditch - Bear Gulch to Little Applegate 4-23-18

Photos by Bob

On a perfect day a convoy of 4 cars and 16 hikers headed for the trailhead. In my enthusiasm I left the shuttle car at the wrong trailhead but this was remedied by Elisabeth cutting down from the Ditch early and moving the car. 

It was a fairly tired bunch who attained the lunch spot on the ridge and I was getting evil eyes from a few hungry people who hadn't pigged out for breakfast. All was forgiven with perfect weather and a big view for a relaxing lunch. By the time we achieved the Little Applegate Trailhead, at a fairly rapid pace all through the day, everyone was in a good mood over the accomplishment. 

Most of us headed for Boomtown and we celebrated our hike with much good cheer. A good time was had by all. It was great to have Irene Sims with us after her accident and she soldiered up the hills in fine style.
