Recently back from a overnight trip to Mt. Gozen (5400ft) and wanted to post a few pics. Since I'm without a car for the year, I'm relying on trains/buses for trail access, which makes the approach to some out-of-the-way trailheads pretty long. Can't complain, because it's nice to have these options though! My guidebook says this hike can be done in a day (6-7hrs) in summer and with a car, but why rush?
Got an early start from camp not too long after sunrise. Left the tent up and sleep bag inside, and packed for a long day-hike. Quite a bit of snow on the ground, but no wind at all and pretty mild temps. I know I'm pushing it using this tent in mid-winter, but I had been watching the weather forecast like a hawk pre-trip.
A parting shot, and it's time to head down..got a train to catch later in the afternoon.
Another pic of one of the bridges on the way down, I think I crossed at least four of these. Once I got back to my tent, I packed everything up and started the 2.5 hr walk back down to the train station. Looking forward to hiking this trail again in the summer!
