There's the pile of rubble that is Bross! We have lots of nice roads to follow.
Interesting old mining structures on the side of Lincoln.

There is Cameron! We're standing right in front of Lincoln right now.

This is the new trail down Bross. It is AWESOME! Great work CFI and all the volunteers who helped!
We still needed to negotiate some scree.
Follow the ridge!
We're almost back!
