Pretty amazing photo Jay...

I did the Kishenehn loop; it really is a scenic, peaceful and not too strenuous 17 miles with the added benefit of hanging at the Ranger's cabin towards the end.

The only downside is 4 creek crossings along the way.

I don't remember that view however....

Unfortunately I don't have access to a photo to post right now, but will either tonight or tomorrow.

Someone feel free to jump in so I don't hold up the fun.

Ok, here is one for you. The quality isn't the best because it was taken with a circa-2004 digital camera. Good luck!

I know burned areas all have a similar look, but this could be the connector trail between the Inside North Fork Road and the Akoloka Lake Trail.

Nope, but you're on the correct side of the park. :wink:

This isn't a popular trail because it lacks the "epic" views everyone wants.

Looks like the Pacific Northwest Trail off (or paralleling) the sand road to Bowman L.

That mountain must be a clue. (Scratch head, consult memory banks ...)

If that's so, and if that's Rainbow way in the background, then I'll say Quartz Creek trail.

Oh Man :)
Are you talking about that lil trail off the Inside Road that goes up to "Hidden Meadow"?
There's a small "lake" up there where it ends?
I had to look to see the name of it. Quartz Ridge trail?
hehe
Good pick if I turn out to be right.

Well...rather than name every trail south of there, Ill first ask if that is Rainbow in the background?
