Bruce had a busy week and asked me to pick a most excellent hike. It's late June, he wanted to sleep in, not drive much, attain peak views without ascending, see brides and some other nonsense I couldn't comprehend. I did my best...

This was the filler hike to get us to our main hike. No one seems to speak very highly of the Yeager Trifecta. What locked me in was a small glimmer of hope from king of kind... Mr Preston Sands. He rated the "canyon" and "cabin" segments a little higher than others.

I'm very glad I took the chance. None of these are remotely close to a 2 rating in my book. The "canyon" is a high 3. The "cabin" segment is pure sweetness and deserves a 4 as 3 just doesn't cut it for the canopy. Mistboy must be forest blind to lay down a 2 but he is entitled to his opinion.

"Little" is descent too. Bruce found a bunch of small foundations down near the trailhead. Which isn't well marked nor difficult to figure out.

The only time I got "hot" during the day was on the top third climb of #28. It was very warm throughout the day, maybe 85(short lived atop #111) to 100 on our three hikes. Low to mid 90s probably for the majority. It slows me down but isn't a terrible thing. This hike was 10am-1pm
