3-day / 3-night trip up the Dose to Hayden Pass and back. 46 miles round trip after adding a meadow nearby to the itinerary. Mix of sun and rain.

Dose Road: clear/nothing to report.

Dose Campground to Hayden Pass: just a few trees down that pose a nuisance more than anything. Many thanks to the crews who made this trail clear! Meadows are obviously full of ripe vegetation that is sopping wet after a rain. My legs were two temporary, traveling waterfalls in the valley.

Abundant water along most of the way. Nice campsites, although Bear Camp was the prettiest and has a charming shelter and awesome views. Dose Meadow small and buggy.
