Argentine & McClellan - All Spurs Day

The goal of the day is to travel some of the trails of lesser interest for the Argentine & McClellan mountain trails. One trail is to the north, dropping down the mountain. It's a dead end. The others are across the valley as we come into the valley - visible on a typical visit but never visited...

New vehicle mountain testing

Waiting for the rest of the group to show up (I came straight to the trailhead vs. the meet spot)

At timberline

and now above timberline - wide views.

Path to the lookout.

Back with the full group, heading over to the Argentine spurs...

Across the "typical" side of the valley to the new-to-me spurs.

Heading out via the lower trail - snaking along the stream.
