I hiked Peralta to Fremont Saddle and decided to take the Cave Trail back this time. I followed the cairns and got to the caves without a problem. I was really surprised at how high this trail goes relative to Peralta far below. Looking down, I could see 'lines' of people hiking the trail I wasn't on. I was so pleased with myself for making this choice...but, not for long. Devils Slide had green/brown skanky water in it making it too slick to try to walk down and I just couldn't see filling my shorts with slime. I'm not usually that much of a 'girl', but I just couldn't make myself do it. Since I was alone, and knowing that there were more challenges ahead, I started to doubt the wisdom of this idea. There were cairns going off in other directions so I followed them to end up nowhere. Reluctantly, I made the call to turn around and go back the mile and a half to the saddle to return the way I came. That bites. Not all hikes go as planned. But for me, any hike I manage to come back from I should consider a success!
