1st trip
Nice day out with JJ3 & LP. We followed the Derrick Trail up to the Promontory Trail and on to the rim. The way up is ridiculously steep and loose! It was a lot of work struggling up the "trail". Once on top our going was fairly easy as we made our way over to the high point. While searching we spotted a six foot cairn and then found the register buried over by the rim. We signed in and enjoyed the views.

From there we made our way to 300 and followed that west to Horton. We made our way down another semi steep trail. Our plan was to take Horton back but made a wrong turn and decided to just go with it and returned via the Highline and Derrick Trail thus completing a lasso loop.

Felt great getting back out above the rim. It's such beautiful country up there. I look forward to spending a lot of time up there this summer. Bring on the heat!
