H squared, Gums and me decided to go east for a ride. Hwy 2 had some traffic troubles due to a fire so our 1st pick of Devils Gulch was changed to the closer Nason Ridge which was this side of the detour. Gums actually was few minutes early for our 5:00 AM meetup at me casa. H squared, being the ardent adventurer left yesterday on his DRZ and was going to camp somewhere and meet us at the trailhead. This trail is really close to civilization and the State Park at Lake Wenatchee. There is a usually a few hikers and horseback riders from the stable in the park (OK, just the riders, not the hikers). We are ahead of all of them except there's just one truck and he looks like a biker. He's comes in as we're ready to depart and reports the trail conditions as dusty (he was by himself). Pics to come.
