This one turned out to be a recon hike for a future winter ascent of the dixes via the Boquet River valley. A bit of early fall snow made the slide itself a little too treacherous, so we opted instead to explore the snow-free Boquet valley, figuring out the lay of the land and the herdpaths. In this way, we could come back in the winter with a solid understanding of how to quickly and efficiently get to the base of the slide. (plus, it was a nice fall day, and the Boquet River valley is quite a pleasant walk in the woods).
