Initially I wasn't keen on the clockwise approach. I have childhood(late 20's) memories of returning exhausted along the First Water stretch. In retrospect this turned out to give us really nice light throughout the loop.

It was good to see Chris at the beginning of the hike, Taco Bell and the end of the hike. Jim mentioned while you can hike in the Bay area it lacks the geology punch many AZ hikes offer. Upon further review, he may not fully understand geology(Chris made me write that!). Wally Carlson Jr got out the history whip and started cracking tales. It was a grand ol' time!

Back at the trailhead we met Kyle and company, good to meet everyone!

Searched for this one long ago. Gave it another try circling the bone dry area.
