Keeping the sky bright all through the night, the beautiful harvest moon setting behind Tomyhoi Peak greeted us our last morning at camp.
Having feasted on so many ripe mountain blueberries the day before during our hike to the old Gargett Mine (see Hike # 80 – Gargett Mine), we combed the bushes around our campsite so we could add some to our morning oatmeal. Blueberries for breakfast – absolutely delicious!
After breakfast, we folded up our campsite and repacked our backpacks in preparation of the hike back down to the trailhead.
After hiking back to the trailhead near Twin Lakes, almost immediately, we managed to hitch a ride with some nice folks heading back down that bumpy old logging road to where we had parked our car at the Yellow Aster Butte trailhead. Thanks so much! That ride saved us a 2-1/2 mile walk down a gravel road!
What a fun time we had during this backpacking trip! To read about other hikes we enjoyed in the High Pass area, see – Hike #81 – Even Higher Pass, Hike #80 – Gargett Mine and Hike #79 – Low Pass/High Pass – Setting Up Camp (Day 1 – High Pass Backpacking Trip).
