Alpinejo.tripod.com: Backcountry Trails Guide
Is moving to a new web server, please click on this link to go to Alpinejo.com
Please update your bookmarks.
I had to move my site due to Tripods new policy of only providing 20 megs of
free space, my site currently uses the old maximum at nearly 49 megs. As you may
have noticed my site was also being shut down on a daily basis due to exceeding
Tripod's new bandwidth policy--but hey what could I expect for free. It was fun
while it lasted.
In the coming weeks I hope to release the new format of Alpinejo-Backcountry
Trails Guide with a new database and searching capabilities.
Thanks for visiting!

Green Lake is a beautiful place. I did not see anyone else on the trail
this day. No camping is permitted.
This is a great hike to start out a day. Hiking through the forest over
and around tree roots, then you meander along coming to Ranger Creek
Falls, which is worth a look. Then continue up to the lake, it is pretty
brushy and the views of the surrounding hills are worth the trek.
It is really nice up there, the peace and quiet are a nice addition.
