Tin Hat Aug 8th

New logging/roads made it confused to find the washed out road trailhead which now starts further up from it original location. Incredible day at the top as usual! No clouds to be seen, and the view was as breathtaking as ever. The light breeze unfortunately did not keep the flies away. The surprise on top was an added bonus. On the way down we decided to take the SCT down to the Fiddle Head Farm. The trail was very well marked with orange squares and pink, blue and orange ribbon. 1/2 way down the trail become very grown in with 2.5 meter brush for 2-3 km before becoming well maintained again. Logging is active at the washed out road trailhead, so the Fiddle Head Farm to Lewis Lake route is the only option.
