icehouse canyon to icehouse saddle

got out for a nice, leisurely hike today with my friend natalie.   we did the standard route from icehouse canyon trailhead to the saddle via icehouse (not chapman trail).   ’twas beautiful out – about 72 and sunny.   If you haven’t done this trail before, I’d recommend it.   Even if you’re not a huge hiker, doing just a mile of this trail is beautiful, especially with the autumn colors (see pictures).   Otherwise, the distance is a hair over 7 miles or so with a gentle elevation gain throughout.

-springs are all cooking pretty well right now

-trail was crowded, but its still a peaceful place and most other hikers are way cool and respectful.

-ran into a ranger at the trailhead.   he was cleaning out the stalls.   one of the nicest, coolest rangers i’ve ever come across.   it’s always fun to meet cool people.
