It's been a while since I've payed a visit to Barry. I was making excellent time going up Goat Camp until I started to feel really lightheaded about 2 miles in. Took a brief rest and drank some water. I toned it down a bit, but was still able to keep a good pace along the rest of the trail. The Jeep trail seemed easier to follow this time around, and the service road was just as strenuous as I remember. I found the trip as a whole to be a butt-kicker. It was about 50 degrees throughout, and I think Mapdex said 46 for the actual peak. This made it much more comfortable than my previous July trips. :sweat:

The views from the top were incredible in all directions, especially my favorite - west. I listened to the whirring machinery, that didn't really need to be there, while I had lunch. On the way down, I took a quick side trip to the southern outcrop around the two mile marker. There was a chubby looking hawk perched up there, but it took off before I could get a good picture. I could also see a good ways up Black Canyon which has been on the back burner for a little bit.

Next time I'll head up Mesquite to even things out.
