Pawnee – Buchanan Pass Loop

Once a year is not often enough to take on the epic Pawnee-Buchanan Loop, but that seems to be my timing. This was the first attempt in the clockwise direction and it was a different experience entirely.DSCN1739

We had a nice group of 12 runners charging up the first steep climb towards Pawnee Pass.

The water falls were numerous and gushing.
