California Gulch is an easy trail, and we didn't encounter much traffic.
The first thing we came up on was Columbus Mine, and we did not stop. We still had a lot of miles to cover, so we just took a picture or two.
As we went up the valley to the switchbacks, we ran into a small group of off-road vehicles also driving up the switchbacks. We all stopped at the top of California Gulch to enjoy the views of the lake down below. The lake had a very cool emerald-blue color.
The switch back on the way down did not give us any issues, and we headed off to the next trail.
