After a ten minute wait for a spot in the lot, hiked the loop clockwise starting at about high noon. Got to use my new Garmin Foretrex 101 - which wears like a wristwatch. Many people out on the trail, most coming back from a counter clockwise hike. Nothing exciting to note, with the exception of a short trek off trail to get to the black rock peak to the left of Black Mesa and my jacket that I had tied to my waist fell off! After about 45 minutes of backtracking, and after just about giving up, found the puppy. Good thing, things got a bit chilly on the way back on Dutchman.

Warning: heat kills!
Avoid 8am to 5pm over 90 degrees. Prehydrate & stay hydrated.
Hikebot recommends using an umbrella to block the sun.
Avoid Heat Illness - do NOT hike when temps exceed 100 degrees, period.
