It's an obstacle course and then some!
Otherwise, with a 4:30 p.m. start after work, we enjoyed the warm summer evening and were able to hike clear to the train tunnel and back just before we lost the last rays of sun at 9 p.m. The up-and-back hike is a total of about seven miles with many ups and downs, cliffy stretches, stream crossings and low bridges where the taller of the GiG had to watch their heads.
At the cliff diving place, Brianna and Katie decided to jump in to cool off, with Katie taking the low dive (wimping out), while Brianna tackled the high platform. Both had cross Belt Creek, bushwack and then rock climb a bit to get to the jumping-off spot. Katie, without her glasses, had to wade through Belt Creek legally blind.
Overall, it was a fun time on a warm night. Many of the gals hope to make the trip all the way through to see the old mining ghost town. Read more about the Sluiceboxes and the former town of Albright.
