The intention was to hike the Bull Basin / Pumpkin loop but past the connector trail we lost, really never found, the Bull Basin trail itself. As to not lose to much more time then we already did, we just hiked off-trail, up hill, to the Pumpkin trail, then continued up only to the 9600' level. Since we had already been to the lookout this year, and we wanted to check out the Lava Tube we decided to cut this trip short. Also, I was feeling the effects of the higher elevation with a major headache and shortness of breath. Note to self, need to find ways to help the body adapt to high elevation hiking. Definitly should have drank more water on the drive up from the valley.
