Decided to come back and do this clockwise this time. I had a few places I wanted to explore from last time. Planned on doing this Monday when it was cooler, but didn't get much sleep which has been the norm for the last 3 weeks. :-k :) Anyway, today started about the same way, but I got to the trail head at 6:30 finished the coffee and headed on my merry way. Should have drank it all on the way so I would have been awake enough to bring my lunch and not accidently deleted my way points as I was resetting the GPS. Planned on visiting the ruins again, but instead took a 1 hour nap on the rock below without hearing a single baby cry. :y: It was pretty hot in the canyon and I climbed up to a couple spots with no luck. Unfortunately, the spot I really wanted to check out didn't seem to be visible with the vegetation compared to last year and that was one of the way points I'll have to reload. Had a good time, but because I thought in the interest of time I would skip 6100 I took a different route. I wish I would have taken the exact route I took last year with Kyle the heartless. Bush wacking from Rough Canyon to Reavis trail sucked! I'm not sure if it was the heat, lack of views (in 10 foot manzanita forest), just going up the canyon rather than down, but I enjoyed last years trip more. (Except for the quiet nap!) I have six inch bruises starting at my ankles on both shins. I even wore long pants! :o I was startled in the canyon, by a pretty angry rattler. I thought it was bird mimicking, because I couldn't see it in the shade with the sunlight through the trees. When I finally saw her she was coiled and about six inches from my leg. I reached up grabbled a branch and brought it down between us and ended up having to break a branch and encourage her to move as she was blocking the only way I could go. She struck twice at the branch while I was moving her. I've never had any issues with snakes before, just bees :sl:
