hike butler fork to desolation trail

Patrick will go up the west branch of Butler Fork to Desolation Trail (about 2 miles, 1,500 foot gain), maybe with a stop at Circle All Peak. Then he'll take Deso Trail's traverse to the east branch of Butler Fork. This Deso portion is about 2 1/2 miles and can feel quite exposed on a sunny day (bring hat and sunscreen). The beautiful descent down east Butler Fork branch is often a good place to see moose.
