Great desert day hike on ICT


This is Steve from Boise, Idaho.  First time posting to this blog.

Just wanted to share my experience on Tuesday (16 February 2016) on the ICT.  Two of my sons and I hiked the 4 miles from Alkali Rd. to Bennett Mountain Rd and back.  It was a beautiful day, unseasonably warm for February.  Blue skies, no wind.  Very pleasant hike.  No snow on the south-facing slopes but about 8 inches of wet unconsolidated snow on the north-facing slopes, which was just the last 1/4 mile.  Without a doubt, the most memorable aspect of the hike was how many deer we saw.  I do not exaggerate when I say we easily saw 200 deer in the 4.5 hours we were out.

I'll be hiking more on the ICT in the months and years to come.  I would enjoy getting to know other hikers interested in the ICT.

That's all for now.  Thanks for reading!
