This is far as I went, it's about 5 miles and 3,000 feet down to the trailhead near the Pine Creek Tungsten Mine.  To my left would be the trail to the upper mines, to my right the route to Bear, Finch, Split and Spire Lakes.  You can see Mt. Tom, part of the Pine Creek Tungsten Mill, and the trail to Pine Lakes.  What a view!

Looks like a painting.  Awesome!
Let me wake laughing from a nap in the afternoon under the aspens in the fall.
