Fourmile Canyon/Ticaboo January 19-21 2008

Kessler and I went on a four day trip January 18-21, which included a three day backpack of the remote Fourmile Canyon and Ticaboo Canyon areas. The area is remote and unvisited for a place that you can get to in three days. On our two camps at Fourmile Spring, it was 0.8 degrees F and 4.1 degrees F, though days were very pleasant.

Day 1 was spent hiking over the pass between Mount Elsworth and Holmes and to Fourmile Spring. We dropped our packs offs here and spent the rest of the day exploring the canyon. Since the canyon got more interesting downcanyon, we didn't want to turn back. Kessler wanted to hike down until dark in order to see the deep narrows section. We saw it, but had to walk back in the dark and in the moonlight. It was a nice night walk, but Kessler got a bit spooked since there were some animals.

Day 2 was spent on the benchlands between Fourmile and Ticaboo Canyons. We found many facinating places to explore and we took the entire day to d fun exploring.

Day 3 was spent hiking out and exploring an alternate way back to the vehicle.

Kessler is going places! The one of the 'Chockstone' makes me
nervous, but it still gets my vote. I'm glad to see the Henrys
are finally getting noticed and documented on SP. They are
definately an uncommon range of peaks!
