We did some LSD today up on Pool Table Road. LSD is long, slow, distance, not the psychedelic drug, lol. We walked out to Hanson Mill campground. Total distance was about 10.9 miles. Aspens are leafing and signaling Spring is here.

My wife, son and I hiked up to Little Ruby Lake via the Fern Creek Trail.  It is all-up (3.75 miles) and you gain almost 2,000 ft of elevation topping out around 11,250 ft, so it's a good workout.  Apparently there was a big fire in this area back in 2013, so there are a lot of deadfall/blowdowns. We must have had to go over/under/around 30-40 of them, making the hike somewhat of an obstacle course.

Road walk from start of Pool Table Road up to Wheeler Basin Campsite 1.  This is a drivable forest service road for AWD/4WD vehicles, but hikable since there is not a lot of traffic.  Nice views along the way.
