Corral Pass - Palisades Loop

Even awesome after the fire

First time adventuring this loop. Even with all the fire damage, and realizing it is just a renewal for mother nature in the grand scheme of things, this is truly a wonderous ride. Started at the Camp Sheppard Trailhead and headed South on the White River trail. Climbed Corral Pass Road and then on to Noble Knob trail, Dalles Ridge trail, and Palisades. The fire added its challenges, and there were some tiny extra hike-a-bikes due to loose soils, but all were just part of the epic adventure. The weather was cool and cloudy above 6000' so no real view of Rainier. Skies cleared after I got back to the car at the Camp Sheppard trailhead. Ranger says Deep Creek is still a mess and they haven't started on it yet. Track and many pics here.
