I like these 'back in the day' photos Noondueler. Thanks for posting!
I have fond memories of that hike. Especially the view of Mt. Gardiner which I didn't know the name of at that time. Got to get back there maybe this year. I love the South Fork Canyon.
It feels as one stood on the trail oneself, and saw it with one's own eyes.
Thanks Lolli! I agree, that's a good description. It is a fabulous canyon.
