38 viewsLooking DOWN on Cathedral Rock. Again, the TT is parked on the road at the far left. We walked out to the main road where we encountered Jeff, who we had bumped into earlier in the day traveling the opposite direction. (He did South Loop, Summit, then North Loop and Trail Canyon.) We joined him for a few beers at the Upper Mt. Chas Lodge, then he gave us a ride back to our car. 17 miles total distance, just over 11 hours.Aug 07, 2007

71 viewsThis is the 1955 plane crash site, where 14 people were killed in a military accident. Once the classified material was removed from the site, the rest was left for the park service to remove. Due to the remote location, it is a very low-priority task. Hikers have stripped many of the parts for souvenirs, but there is plenty left!Aug 07, 2007
