Mike said he doesn't do the ML often but when he does he prefers it HOT! So after last week's inaugural run a follow up was in order. The game plan was to identify what I've dubbed Dave1's "Speed Route".

Driving in passing Mine Mountain on the east ( about 4,200 ft ) we came to a cow elk and her calf in the road. This surprised me even though I've been telling Bruce they inhabit the area.

69 degrees greeted us at the trailhead. 1 mile in we met some interesting guys. Wally would really enjoy a long dutch conversation with one of the guys. We chatted just under an hour after all was said and done.

Took 5 quarts and consumed 3.5. Would have consumed more if it would have thawed...lol Long sleeves and pants again. Much warmer and this setup won't work for this cowboy.

Mike seems to be on par in route finding with Juliachaos at her peak performance years ago. We identified Dave1's "Speed Route" in slow motion. For the first time I can finally say I'm beginning to understand peak number two :y:

Great hike minus the worlds most annoying bird that cackled for hours only gasping for air on occassion
