Well, I was looking for a nice short hike this time of year. 1.5 miles in 110F heat. It turned out to be a 3+mile hike. With the canyon shaded, and a nice breeze at my back, i kept climbing. Once you hit 3000ft, you can go off in a lot of directions, but all your shade ends there. I was still passing cairn markers where I stopped. I topped out about 3400ft. .
This turned out to be one of my favorite hikes that I have done in a long time. I really enjoyed the bolder climbing. I saw between 6-8 sheep while i was there, and 3 different canyons with Palms. I will be doing this again in cooler weather.
I took a short video, of a conversation I was having with a local sheep.
