I've been doing easy trips lately. Just a quick trip for two nites each time 
into the Trinity Alps via Trail Gulch Lake. It's only 2 miles in, and then I 
did a loop out to Long Gulch lake two weeks ago, and last weekend I went 
down to Schlomberg cabin to finish my last section of the old PCT in the 
Alps. I found one of Monte Dodge's 1977 campsites this weekend.  I carried 
my ULA Circuit pack. The photos are in my www.pbase.com/losthiker/inbox  .. 
There's still time and good weather for more trips this fall.
