Fourth of July Pass, Oct-09 : On October 10 we took a trip to finish the hike we started last Weekend. This time we lucked out with the weather, it warmed up and the sun came out.

Fourth of July Pass is a 10.6 mile / 17.1 km round trip, the first part of the trip winds through rain forest clad forest bottom, a little past the bridge you reach the turnoff to the pass, and here the fun begins. The book says 2.6 miles and 2400 ft elevation gain, that is a LIE! there are 35 switchbacks, and number 15 is at LEAST four miles all by itself! Switchback 25 also deserves honorable mention.. This trek is about 5.1 miles down the mountain but at least 25 miles going up, 50 if it is snowing and 100 if you hurt in any place.
