Todie Canyon away from the ants
Nice camp or resting spot at the mouth of Todie Canyon with its junction at Grand Gulch. This spot is a little over 7 miles from the Kane rangers' station trailhead and a nice destination for a day hike. There were too many ants running around my log seat and the ground, so I hung my day pack and my Tilley hiking hat, so I could get my snacks and drinks in and out of my daypack without gathering any Grand Gulch hormiga (ants) hitchhikers. I carried a lot of water with powdered Gatorade to add to taste; small cartons of Pringle potato chips; cashews; and dark chocolate. The rest of the pack was full of GPS, monoculars, map, first aid kit, extra clothes, etc. etc. The green cottom bandana was something I often carry but don't always use. It was a real treat on this trip as I hike up out of Grand and Kane Gulch. I dunked it in cold clear stream water and wore it under my Tilley hat. I could regulate the drip or evaporation rate (cooling effect) by how much I would wring out the bandana after a dunking. These are the photographs of a day hike I took on day 6 of my 8 day road trip. It is a hike down Kane Gulch, starting at the Kane rangers’ station, down to Grand Gulch, where the Junction Anasazi ruins are located. Then down Grand Gulch past Turkey Pen ruins; Burned ruins; and many short scrambles up the canyon benches to visit granaries, rock art and cliff dwellings which Grand Gulch and its side canyons are famous for. The scenery in the canyons is wonderful as well, so it makes for great hiking. The many canyons off Cedar Mesa are up high. The canyon rims are covered in a forest of juniper and pinon pine. As its name suggests, the entire high table land is flat on top. At the trailhead for this hike you are at around 6,500’. The day before this hike, I had traveled from my fourth camp out at Betatakin (Navajo National Monument), up to Monument Valley, where I took the scenic and enjoyable 17 mile dirt loop route through the spectacular rock formations there. Then I drove across the San Juan River at Mexican Hat, Utah to the Butler Wash dirt road on the east side of the impressive “Comb Ridge”. I took two hikes on the Comb Ridge and enjoyed them both: Procession Panel Petroglyph hike and the Monarch’s Cave Cliff Dwellings hike. I got a motel room in Blanding for two nights so I could travel showered and packed light to Cedar Mesa for this hike, and then have a hot shower and room waiting for me after the Kane/Grand Gulch hike. It is about a four mile hike from the Kane Rangers’ to the junction of Kane and Grand Gulch. I hiked a little over three miles from that junction, down to the mouth of Todie Canyon, visiting rock art and cliff dwellings all along the way and enjoying the scenery. The month before my wife and intended to do this same hike after completing a short hike in South Mule Canyon with some good friends we met in Utah for some hiking together, but recent rain had made Kane Gulch a bit of a mess and the rangers advised us to do the Kane Gulch hike another time. So instead my wife and I hiked the short hike down Sheiks Canyon (high and dry), down to Yellow House ruins, then went on to tour the Valley of the gods. I didn’t see another hiker until I was about halfway down Grand Gulch where I met two men backpacking from Bullet Canyon to Kane; a bit later I met two nice young couples from Cedar Rapids, Iowa, who were doing the same backpacking trip and planned to stop at the Kane & Grand Gulch junction to camp the night, before exiting up Kane Gulch. From Kane Rangers’ station trailhead down to the mouth of Todie Canyon and back was a little over 14 miles. The hiking was easy, scenic, and straightforward. Sweet pea was out in force and full blossom giving color and fragrance to the hike. A most enjoyable day hike and the last hike I took on this road trip, as the weather began to change for the worse, as I exited Kane Gulch. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ May 12th through May 19th - - I traveled 9 states in 8 days, camping, driving back roads, visiting scenic and historic sites, and taking some great day hikes. These are some of the photographs from this solo "road trip". Day One: Home in Eastern Washington; Mountain Home, Idaho; Owyhee, Nevada and a very cold night camped at Wild Horse Crossing south of Mountain City, Nevada. Day two: NEVADA - - Mountain City; Elko; Wells; Ely (through a snow storm); Panaca. UTAH - - Enterprise, Veyo, to a warm and scenic enjoyable camp and hiking at Snow Canyon. Day three: UTAH - - Snow Canyon; St. George; Hurricane; to Fredonia, Arizona. Forest Service Road #22 and many others to places like Monument Point and Indian Hollow. Too cold to camp (got down to 19 degrees that night), so dropped down low to BLM wilderness land off 89 A and spent the night among sagebrush and juniper with curious mule deer as "neighbors". Day four: Opening day of the North Rim of Grand Canyon National Park. Visited the park and arriving early had many plHiking to top of Bare Mountain
Me in green, Bob in Red, heading up toward the top of Bare Mountain up Bear Creek up Lennox Creek; up the North Fork of the Snoqualmie River in Washington state's Cascade Mountains. 1970s. So here is the background to the photos you will see in this set: I ran a trap line as a high school student. After walking my trapline many miles before and after school I bought a Honda Trail 55, which opened up lots of opportunities for me in the nearby Cascade Mountains. Areas I had walked, I could now ride to and then park the trail bike and hike farther into the mountains. I LOVED exploring historic and scenic places back then, same as I do now as a retiree. To reach the Lennox Creek area, I would ride my Honda Trail 55 up to Snoqualmie (you know Twin Peaks country below Mt. Si). Then a long dirt road would take me up the North Fork of the Snoqualmie River. I took many side trips up to lakes and peaks along the way but the Lennox Creek area was always my favorite. Turning up the Lennox Creek canyon there was (and of course, still is) a sheer cliff above the left bank of the creek. I would watch mountain goat and use binoculars to explore the adits from the old mining days, across the creek. While in high school I honestly met an old miner with a Gabby Hayes hat, donkey, Santa Claus white beard, and mining supplies neatly lashed to the back of the burro. We talked. I was told of the mining cabin up Bear Creek and some of the best placer mining for gold up Cougar Creek. I couldn't wait to start hiking and exploring the area. I did so over many years following my high school days. The mining cabin up Bear Creek had a sign on the door inviting anybody who wanted to use the cabin, to do so, but please leave all belongings there and leave the cabin as found. Simple, fair, and that advice was followed for many years. The only photos I found of that cabin are in this set and were taken when there was plenty of snow. I can picture the interior of the cabin as if it were yesterday. We climbed to the top of Bare Mountain as I had done on my own, the first time I visited the area. The other mining area was harder to find. The first time I tried to hike up Cougar Creek (with Cougar Lake or Goat Lake on my mind), I found no trail on the right bank but plenty of devil's club; downsloped alder; downed timber; big boulders and all other obstacles you could imagine. Then I found the miner's trail on the north side of Cougar Creek (left bank). I remember the magis of hiking on my own and finding the old cabin with window glass in place and looking good. Since it didn't have an invite note on the door, I never went into it. A cleverly designed cache shed was leaning but standing near the cabin. It had cedar rail shelves, which I was told was where a placer miner would store his dynamite boxes to keep the "powder dry". I still have one of the old wooden dynamite box sides (mortis and tendon joints) from the scrap pile around the cabin. Black lettering on the wooden boxes is barely legible: ICC-14 High Explosives Dangerous Pacific Powder Co. Tenino, Wash. Later I took my wife up to show her the cabins and I also took a backpacking (bushwhacking) trip up from the cabin to Cougar Lake. The lake was frozen over and we had a real adventure getting up the cliffs to the lake. So some of the photos in this set are of Bear Creek and Bear Mountain the others are from Cougar Creek . Both creeks are tributaries of the lovely pool basin Lennox Creek. There was lots of mining equipment (big and heavy) up the Bear Creek canyon back then. Most is probably still there. The photos were taken with an inexpensive film camera but I hope those of you interested in the area can overlook the photo qualities and enjoy the trip back in time to an area with a rich history.
