Does anyone know if the trail to Sundog and then to Sunshine well marked?
I've looked through trip reports but couldn't find much info.
Thanks in advance for any info.

I did just this a number of years ago and had no trail up Sundog. I hit the trail and at the South Fork junction with Silver Creek just headed up the ridge south to Sundog, then an easy amble to Sunshine then Red Cloud. The topo shows a trail to a mine above 12200, but I don't remember it. Just go early and fast, you know how fast the San Juans weather can change. As always have fun!
He was told he must first spend five years in contemplation. After the five years, he was ushered into the Dalai Lama's presence, who said, 'Well, my son, what do you wish to know?' So the pilgrim said, 'I wish to know the meaning of life, father.'
And the Dalai Lama smiled and said, 'Well my son, life is like a beanstalk, isn't it?'
I thought that might be the case. I think I found this route in Roaches book and a little bit on SummitPost but could get any details.
I don't want to get my butt lost.
What are your feelings about a relative novice trying that route............or should I skip Sundog and do the regular loop around Sunshine and Redcloud?
