I'd been wanting to do this loop all summer and finally the area is open again. We started clockwise from the Pine TH and took the steep ascent up Milk Ranch Point to get it out of the way before it warmed up. On the Donahue on Milk Ranch Point we had our highlight of the hike. We saw a couple of elk which ran as soon as they were aware of our presence. The couple of elk turned into more and more and soon we spotted between 15 and 20 running away. It was awesome!

West Webber was probably the best stretch of trail all day. That's a great section. Geronimo was kind of blah as usual. That part of the Highline is a rollercoaster with its ups and downs but has some really nice spots. We saw storms and some lightning in the distance but luckily didn't get dumped on again. There was water at Red Rock Spring.

This is a pretty great loop and I'll probably do it again one of these days. It was a little tougher than I had expected and my feet were pretty glad to get rid of my boots when we were done.
