    Russian, Gwins to Resurrection to Devils Loop

    In an effort to link trails and get the goods before the goods are jungle, we parked at the Devils trailhead and rode to Snug Harbor road. Not a bad road ride at 9 miles. One lady yelled at us that there was a trail, but the trail was very hilly and she didn't ask nicely. Snug Harbor road took a bit as it is climbing and up about 12. Russian was in great shape and put us right out by Gwins. An hour, 4 IPA's, and a burger later we were on the way to the Cooper Landing TH of Resurrection. In sort of a buzzed adrenaline sprint, we made it the swan lake climb in no time. About 2/3 of the way up, I hit a wall and had to eat everything I had left. I thought the burger and beers would have carried me to the truck. It was great being up there on such a warm and sunny night. It has been years since I've seen it so dusty and pleasant up there.

    I think that after you suffer on that trail in the wind and rain time and time again, the mountain weather gods grant you a sun pass.
