day hike - butler fork to circle awl to dog lake loop - October 12, 2019

Hiked this the other day led by Gretchen Siegler, and we commented how pretty it would be in the autumn. Most folks think the flowers were a month late this year, so with any luck we will hit peak autumn foliage through lovely aspen forests. The first couple miles up to first breakfast at Circle Awl will be steep, but the morning should be cool. We will re-group and then pick up the pace along the nearly level traverse along Mill A Basin trail to second breakfast at Dog Lake. Wear long pants because the trail is known for nettles. Sunrise is 7:37 so lets meet at 7:45 and leave at 8:00 sharp. We'll be on the trail for about 4 hours at a moderate pace, so back to the cars about 12:45.
