Sycamore Canyon route on evening of 29th May 2013 - 16.7 miles
P1050894.jpg
Heading down towards the Satwiwa Cultural Center - green and black
P1050895.jpg
pretty desolate on the way down
P1050896.jpg
looking back towards the top of the blacktop
P1050897.jpg
looks like there might not be much left of Sycamore!
P1050898.jpg
the wooden bridge at the bottom of the blacktop - singed but still passable
P1050899.jpg
same can't be said for the outhouse - guess it's back to the bushes for relief!

Chuck and Hector at the blacktop split to Sin Nombre
P1050901.jpg
this bridge was unscathed - unless they did a very quick rebuild!
P1050902.jpg
ashes on the way to Sin Nombre
P1050903.jpg
entrance to Sin Nombre is a little more visible now!
P1050904.jpg
Sin Nombre is pretty well torched

trail junction at the end of Sin Nombre
P1050906.jpg
looks like those trees will come back

at the junction up to Sage and the water tank

from where we just came

looking towards Two Foxes
P1050910.jpg
I wonder if the Sycamore Canyon residence is still there? ...
P1050911.jpg
... yep, looks unscathed - how did they do that?!
P1050912.jpg
the start of the Sage Trail
P1050913.jpg
Sage - this makes Sin Nombre look very green!
P1050914.jpg
it's a little bit overdone!
P1050915.jpg
at least you can now see how far you have to go to the top!
P1050916.jpg
it seems rockier now - and smells very burnt!
