The trail starts near and parallels Loon Lake for a couple of miles.
David and the far end of Loon Lake
Some kind of suncup (?)
Loon Lake from east
David on the rocky trail
The trail turns into an old road and is covered in ankle-twisting rocks. Ugh.
Me at a geocache next to Buck Island Lake
Ben: "Does this angle make my butt look big?"
Checking out the dam at the end of Buck Island lake
Buck Island Lake Dam
We walked around the lake - on the far side we met the Rubicon trail and a bunch of jeepers.
Not gonna make that in my stock 4x4
Ben checks out one of the obstacles on the Rubicon
Buck Island Lake
Falls between Rockbound Lake and Buck Island Lake
A crushed vehicle
Has to have been here a long time - there used to be a road going through here but it is now overgrown and you can't even find where it was. The vehicle had wooden floors.
Ben encounters some super soft forest duff
Sunset from camp
Laurent will not give up
Hiking out along Road Ankle Twist
Hm, need to figure this one out.

Hiking out along the old road
Back to Loon Lake
