I've been wanting to link up Battleship and the lower LaBarge Box into one hike before it warms up too much more. Luckily, Rachel was down for this one. The temps were perfect and it was a beautiful day. We got an early start and were up and back down Battleship by noon. A pair of red-tailed hawks circled us on and off during our climb up and down Battleship. They came pretty low a few times-- they obviously didn't like us there. We guessed they must have a nest. Looks like they picked a great area since there's so many places no one will ever get to on Battleship. We then headed back to the saddle and down to the box. I was surprised at how well worn that trail down is-- we were expecting to bushwack. We made it through LaBarge and up to the Calvary a little worn out. Doing Battleship and the box together was working some different muscles more than usual. Great day!
