Shanteel L. on Homestead (Squaw Creek) Trail
How I got there: Headed east on Warm Springs and turned right (north) onto Council Springs. It's at the end of the road. Loved this hike! Very green right now with lots of trickling streams and signs of mule deer in the area. Remembered this time to bring a grocery bag--used it to clean up the fire pit garbage at the Old Homestead a little ways off the trail. Highly recommended. Note: If you are a geocacher, there are a handful of fun, easy ones along the trail!
We hiked Lost Man Trail this morning, as a supplemental to Mineral Ridge. The trail was in excellent condition. The weather was a bit cloudy, but nice for a hike. We followed a fresh moose trail on the way back, and got to see the tail end of the moose as it disappeared into the brush below. It also looks like there have been some sheep up there - not wild sheep, domesticated ones.
