gene marshal trail

A little while back, our troop took an extended trip from the Cuyama Valley to Bear Trap, then Bear Trap through Haddock, 3 Mile, and Pine Mountain Lodge to Piedra Blanca. The final day we made a short hike out to the cars and headed home. The trip was incredible, at times it felt like we were hiking on the east coast and the lower Sierras. I also finally hiked my 1,000th mile with Troop 26.

Please comment, share, and enjoy!
