First time at West Wing. Awesome trails. Only saw one other person. Temperature was way too hot for me though. Saw many red, velvet beetles all over the trail. Ran into swarming bees at the top of the east overlook and also on the West Wing peak. The bees at West Wing peak chased me down the trail a bit, but I did not get stung. Flying ants were crawling all over me, I'm feeling itchy just thinking about it.

I did the extreme loop in the direction outlined on the City of Peoria site. I would have preferred to have done the "extreme" portion clockwise instead of counter-clockwise. There's a short, really steep, section that would have been easier to go up than down.
