Temps were perfect for a long day in the Supes. I only saw a couple groups of backpackers alll day and a large group of college age kids down at Dripping Springs-- not sure what they were doing. It looked like some sort of school or church group.

Coffee Flat is in much better shape than in the past. In the past I've opted to hike in the wash for large sections to avoid the sharp stuff but there was no need this time. Its also much more followable than before-- even on the private land section and all the way to Dripping Springs. Red Tanks was also in much better shape than last time I did this loop. I made much better time than I was expecting-- about 8 hrs. It drizzled rain for a few minutes two or three times but that was about it.

Awesome day.
