I was starting to have AZT withdrawals!! Thanks Denny for letting Joe drive your car to the Peeley TH yesterday. That saved us a good 1-1/2 hours this morning in shuttle setup. (and allowed extra sleep).

The hike started out with a jaunt from the Bushnell Tank parking area, down a 1 mile brisk and breezy Highway 87 to the route to get under 87. The first bit of the hike is non descript, but the rest was pretty special. We passed through quite a few riparian areas, running water and big ole' trees. We took lunch at the Sheep creek, Thicket Spring intersection. After Denny and I checked out the mine that is right there. We got back in about 40' or so and I decided to retreat with bees exiting the mine.

We kept our eyes our along the trails for any potential clues for GPSJoe. We did find a Green Campo Glove 6.7 miles from the Peele TH (N33 57.101 W111 30.790). We left it where we found it. More than likely lost by a hunter. There is a picture in the forum thread.

A big thanks again to Denny for letting us set up the Shuttle yesterday, and to Grace for shuffling Denny around at hours that most significant others are fast asleep.
