Return to Morgan Basin, Toano Mountains November 14, 2010

On November 14th, I returned to the Toano Mountains for a late season hike with my dog Nevada. (To reach the Toano Mountains travel south on Route 93 approximately 13 miles and turn onto dirt road towards range. See May post for detailed instructions). Today the weather was cloudy and cool as I started out on my hike. After a 1.5 miles I skirted the Bluebell Wilderness Study Area. A couple of hours later I entered Morgan Basin to a snow-rain combination. The view was obscured because of low clouds and a more significant storm coming in from the west. The solitude and company of Nevada made for a great hike.
