Cutca Trail 5/3/2021
Cutca Trail that can go all the way up to Eagle Crag.
The first part is down. How steep? Steepness will show on a way back afternoon when it will be hot.
Everything is green here. Too much green = brushy.
Are we down yet?
We are down. Mostly in shade.
However trail is overgrown by poison oak.
Be careful what you are brushing against.
Out of that Poison Oak Alley.
Nice to touch velvety plant.
This hike is all on trail.
Eagle Crag is up there. Kerry and Preston will attempt to do it.
Regrouping at dry creek.
On a way to Cutca Valley.
Finally some color.
It is a Yellow Gravel Road.
We got to the middle of nowhere so itís time to turn back.
Lunch time. Angelika is thinking about Preston who is climbing up with only one bottle of water.
After lunch picture.
Here is the only creek here with running water.
Not many flowers so this is unique.
1km up to our cars.
Patiently consuming our refreshments while waiting for everybody to get up.
John made it.
All up, here is our complete group.
