Hooray for good weather. Hooray for USFS wilderness. Hooray for self-enforced sabbath.
Obscure notes for the future (about Lowder Mountain):
- At the trailhead, make sure to go RIGHT. The leftside trail leads down French Pete Creek.
- The junction to the summit is really obvious. Wait until the junction instead of short-cutting up the ridge.
- The summit is huge, with plenty of campspots.
