October 12 Powderhorn to 5 Lakes familiarization hike.

A detachment of TNSAR's team explored the Powderhorn and 5 Lakes Creeks drainages. This is a consistent stomping ground for lost skiers, so it's good to know the area well.

The "log book" shows: "We covered about 14 miles of gentle terrain in mild weather in about 5 hours. A pleasant day in the woods, with stops at Diamond Crossing, Grouse Canyon, Big Springs and Whiskey Creek Camp. Thanks to Steve for the cookies."
