Well don't it was a disease. The gentleman appeared to be in 70's so would suspect heat stroke or heart failure.

Six years back I took my wife up the Kelly cr trail it was flagged in place and over grown with huckleberry bushes. Earlier that winter there was a heavy wind storm in the valley. When we got to place where the trail goes away from the creek we ran into a large windfall area. Walking on the downed trees you could see the trail down below you. Figured as many trees down as there was they would switchback above it as we pick the trail back up above the blow down.

Sky Hiker, they actually followed the established trail as they cleared those huge blowdowns. Only problem was, like I mentioned earlier, they quit about a mile before the saddle.
Thanks for the WTA link, Rich. That was posted about the same time that we went through.
When we approached from the Scorpion Mountain trailhead the previous summer, I brought notes that I had taken from your old TR and they were very helpful. up.gif

Well here's to hoping it  gets finished. It's been a few years since I poked around at the old horse camp below Scorpion Mtn.
