It’s a 7 mile out & back hike up to the Jumbo Mine ruins, with a 3600′ gain (and then loss) in elevation. It was a phenominal hike, with perfect weather. It was also where I met up with my bruin friend. Luckily, my truce with the grizzlies is still honored by both parties, as the large griz showed very little interest in me at all. It was the closest I have been to one of the big, unpredictable bears in a couple of years.

Jumbo Mine & Above
Just a basic, down to Earth, laid back type of guy here, who loves the outdoors, the indoors, jazz on the turntable, a fire in the woodstove, the northern lights blazing across the sky, and the company of good friends. View all posts by icefogger
