Split South. 1/21/2013
Starting on Wind Caves trail.
There are no Wind Caves here and no trail either. Elephant Knees are in background.
Vit is deciding for a way up.
Still not sure.
We are still going up, where? To the High point of course.
There is even a register here.
Gypsum mine, still humming.
We will follow that ridge for while.
Another bump rest.
John is checking his coordinates.
That T.C. must be here or 0.4 mi south in the saddle.
No T.C. for us, we are going down. John and Hersch are still looking.
The end of this bulldozed road ends in big drop.
Next stop will be that bump over there. Looks steep from here.
Well we started to go up and it is steep.
And it gets even steeper.
Made it to the top. There are moon like views everywhere, interesting.
Way down is somewhat easier.
Since John did not make it to the top we found him some x-section marker instead.
Shadows are getting longer. Still warm.
Our complete group.
We are having a celebration! Vit 300 hikes with J.S. Hiking Society. Presented by F.L.J.S. himself.
