Since the weather forecast was good, Shaylee, Kessler, and I set off to climb Mount Ethel and Lost Ranger Peak, with a short stop at Porcupine Peak. We started at around 5 pm and hiked for three hours (climbing Porcupine Peak along the way) where we found a nice secluded hollow to camp in at the headwaters of Newcomb Creek (six miles from the trailhead).
It was a beautiful campsite next to a nice crag. Despite the good weather forecast, we did get rained on. The wildflowers were good along the way though.
