Tuesday: (07/19) A nice walk on to Bucks Lake. 15 miles today. Above left is the trail just beyond where I camped. Another 2000′ climb to get to the top of the ridge to enjoy a nice rolling hike the rest of the way to Bucks Lake. On the right is a lily pond.

MM1265 at Bucks Lake.  Above left is the sign about the trail Angels at Bucks Lake. I called and got a lift in to their place. They asked me to pick up the sign as it was their last day. I  was the next to the last guest to arrive. Terry and Nancy Williams place call their  place Honker Pass because geese fly by their deck each morning and evening. They pick you up at the trailhead, feed you, provide showers and wash and return you to the trailhead.  Only problem is no cell signal nor WiFi.

A campfire. They have a house guitar and accordion.  Amazing that thre of the 12 guests could play the accordion?
