Did GPSJoe's loop Tuesday a week ago, but didn't have a chance to post anything before now - after all, I am retired! It was a cool, but overcast day, making lighting tough for good pictures in red rock country.

Started from the west BM trailhead and started the BM trail but turned onto the Soldiers Pass Trail which took us past the seven sacred pools to the Devil's Kitchen. We then followed the Jordan Trail and the Cibola Trail to the BM trail at the BM east trailhead. Took the BM back to the West BM trailhead and the Xterror. While on the BM trail we took an unmarked side trail out on the BM to an overlook of Mormon Canyon and (when flowing, which it was not) Bridal Falls. The latter should be quite a sight if you could ever time the visit right AND you didn't get shut out by flowing strems that must be crossed to get there. This latter excursion on BM added about 1.5 miles to give a total for the loop of a little under 10 miles. Not a sunny day, but an otherwise great hike.
