Rocky Gap Boulder Hike Extended!

Today Randi and I hiked to Rocky Gap Boulder and then continued to an awesome overlook into Lost Creek Canyon. We could hear and see a big waterfall deep down in the canyon. We also saw three big horn sheep.

As we got near the overlook Randi spotted a cairn. Since we were in the middle of nowhere, I was surprised to see a cairn. As I looked around I realized we had intersected the Lost Creek Peak Ridge Route I found back in 2006. Pretty cool. Now when descending that route hikers have an option to follow this route down thus avoiding a very tricky down climb via a rope.
