Man this hike was brutal for me. Not only was it hot, but we were swarmed by gnats the entire time. I was so glad to get back to the trailhead and climb into the air conditioned bug-free vehicle! Its quite a climb up to Quartz, the peak is unmistakeable, its the only white one in the range. Its definitely a trip I wanted to do, and Im glad I did. I just know it would be so much nicer in the winter. Thanks to Stiller for driving, and to everyone who went.

Only notable fauna I encountered was a Speckled Rattlesnake below the peak, actually the first time I've seen a Speck while hiking.
