Met BobP at the 104th/Bell trailhead at 5 am - I wanted a break from a nightmare mosaic tile job and he wanted a recovery hike from yesterday's Mother Lode. I think we did 104th, Levee, and Loop Trail to the Bell Pass Trail in the early light. He knew the area really well, and pointed out abandoned mines, petroglyphs, and some of Flat Denny's favorite spots. We left the trail at Bell Pass, adding .9 miles and 800' vertical to summit McDowell. A few sections required the use of hands, but mostly easy off-trail, with some Yahtzee Trails thrown in. ;)
Checked out the Desert Emergency Search and Rescue solar panel and transmitter on top and enjoyed good conversation and a cool breeze for a while. When the wind stopped the gnats suddenly joined the party and it was time to head down.
