Sep 20, 2020Back on the trail

Gary at the junction of the Pilot (Tower) and Pole (Pete) Hollow Trails – I was distracted at the trailhead and didn’t take any pictures. This is my usual spot for a quick selfie and the Pole Hollow cairn. Copyright © 2020 Gary Allman, all rights reserved.

I was working in Kansas City two Saturday’s running, so I decided I’d earned myself a Monday off, and headed down to my usual stomping ground, Hercules Glades for a single night visit. It’s been very dry of late, so finding water away from the popular spots might be a challenge. I decided that the pool under the Twin Falls might still have some water, and if I couldn’t find any there, I’d hike on to Rock Spring which has always seemed to be a reliable water source. I wasn’t quite sure what I was going to do. I might just stop somewhere and do nothing, or I might try and get a few miles in. I’d make up my mind once I’d settled for the night.

There were some people at the trailhead which put me off my trailhead selfie stride, so I stopped to grab a picture with the cairn at the junction of the Pilot and Pole Hollow Trails — as you can see I failed to get the cairn in the picture. Oh well.
