I met up with John and we headed over to Lee's Ferry. He mentions the nice views from Spencer, but fails to mention the 1,500 of elevation gain(until we get out of the vehicle). The views were so good, I just wanted to stand there and just take pictures and not climb any further
. The views on the backside were definitely worth the gain. The sun had set but it wasn't really dark yet and then all of a sudden someone flicked the switch. It was pretty dark as we moved on hiking over a few ridges and then over to the communications tower. I decided to run the hill...I'm just not sure why I did it. The lights of Utah were way cool from here. So were the occasional falling stars. From here on, we wasted a lot of time. We did a couple of sketchy climbs and I took one fall and hurt my forearm. My next fall/slide sent rocks and me down the pass a ways. John chose a different route after hearing my commotion. From here on out, it was pretty easy stuff until we cliffed out. We took the ridge to the road and at about 1130pm we were done. Fun hike....Thanks John for taking responsibility for my safety on your hike
. At one point, I saw my second favorite orange moon. My all time favorite was on the Supes Ridgeline New Years Eve.
