Four fantastic Trailblazers set out from Rim Top Trailhead on a one-way hike
to Two Sixty Trailhead. We enjoyed the best summer weather imaginable:
70° with a clear sky and a light breeze.
“They started to mark the Rim Lakes Vista Trail with blue diamonds,
but ran out of them and started using gray,” Ted explained.
Drivers waited for us as we crossed the Rim Road.
The first part of the trail, which parallels Highway 260, was idyllic.
But change is in the air. They were logging south of Rim Top Trailhead in
2016, and now part of the Rim Lakes Vista Trail is a road.
It leads to a new communications tower.
Ted walked around trying to find the spot where he had taken pictures
earlier, but finally just took a picture and left.
