At almost 14 miles and 3340' of accumulated elevation this hike was a real challenge. Not much water at the falls, but it was flowing.
The long, steep ascent back provided plenty in the way of physical effort. Thankfully just enough large juniper trees gave us shade when we stopped to catch our breath. But once up and over the highest point the last 3 miles mostly downhill were a breeze. Overall, a great day for hiking with some great scenery!

2012-02-22 - Edwards Peak   95 Photos   Feb 22, 2012
 
What started out as a short exploration of the El Oso Mine along FR463 turned out to be a drive all the way out to Edwards Park on FR422. Not content to just turn around and drive back I took on a wide loop hike traversing a number of ridges and peaks, culminating with a climb to the summit of Edwards Peak.

Adding to the Silver Bell Mine exploration I started a month ago with an 8 minute video. We continued past the dead javelina and found numerous offshoots, vertical shafts going up as well as down. By time we turned around our total distance traveled in the mine was an estimated 700+ feet.

Exploring the Columbia Mine with a 13 minute video. By taking numerous off-shoots we soon lost track of how far we traveled far into the mountain. So we paced the longest straight tunnel on the way out and the estimated length was about 600 feet.
