Sterling Mine Ditch Trail - Tunnel Ridge TH to Bear Gulch RT 11-28-16

10 hardy hikers defied the odds and had a very good day to hike Sterling Mine Ditch. No rain. Interesting cloud formations in the valleys and we had to shed clothing after the first mile, which of course was all uphill.

We hiked up to the mine ditch and left along the trail for a few miles. There were good views of the valley and some interesting trees. Eventually the trail started downward and we backtracked rather than give up altitude.

Boomtown was welcoming as always and much of the conversation was about snowshoeing.
