Nice day...elk sightings, and a few smaller critters. Just after sunrise walked through the canyon to see large open areas of grass with purple tops. Some of these heads opened into really pretty flowers.

Great weather, great views both inside and above the canyon. We took the first two of the three point overlook detours, one was to Fisher which was only 0.1 miles out. Another was 0.7 miles (I forget the name), which took us on a point a long ways out into the canyon for lunch ... nice.

Had a boot blowout, stuffing in left boot quickly into the hike disentegrated, making me take every step with the side of my foot on the sidewall. Then the whole seam split open from toe to heel. Tied my sweatrag around it for the last 3-4 miles to keep it together. In the last 5-6 miles with my boot issues, my "git 'er done" kicked in and I turned on the music and took off for the end. : rambo :

Nice hiking with Mike as he joined the Eagle and I in our catching up to Joe & the Tortoise.
