Galena Creek

Photo Album

Hike in the Galena Creek basin from the Mt. Rose Highway. Lots of aspens just past prime fall colors, but definitely on the calendar for next fall.  We got off on a section of the old Mt. Rose Highway, backtracked to the highline road which crosses a tributary of the creek, then finally found a single-track trail crossing to the north of Galena Creek on the return–it looked like it extends west toward the the Mt. Rose and TRT trails.
