Did the loop counterclockwise with the Tortoise. Great day out, perfect weather. Found Whiskey, LaBarge & Bluff Spring locations; Whiskey was running a trickle, LaBarge a little better, Bluff Spring was bone dry. Didn't see anybody out until we came to the turnoff to Bluff Spring. The streams are slowing down and drying up too, algae really starting to set in. Get out while you can, before it all stagnates. Very little wildlife out today, surprisingly.

We considered trying to climb Miner's Needle, has anyone found a non-technical route for it?
