On your way down Jewell. My wife and I were on our way to a picnic. We found a nice sunny, (somewhat) sheltered spot to enjoy lunch and the views into the ravine. Several hikers passed our spot heading down, so we figured everyone got out OK.
I met you at treeline when you turned to go back down and you were "sledding" down the trail with one of the youngsters. If you don't mind my asking how did you find out about the 5 other hikers(probably from the woman that had turned back that had been with them?) and any other info you might be able to share? thanks! fred
