The plan was to take the Romero #8 to the Mt Lemmon #5, east on the Wilderness Of Rocks #44, north up the Lemmon Rocks #12, then to the parking lot, back down the #5, to the #8, and home. This would have taken a couple of trails off my list, and filled out a 15-1/2 hour day.

In the a.m. I started 40 minutes late, then high humidity affected both my speed and water intake to the point that this wasn't gonna happen today. From there I just throttled back and quit beating myself up. At least I had the Wilderness of Rocks to look forward to. I hadn't been on that trail before. Turns out that it's not so eventful, at least on the section I visited. A lot of fire damage made it almost depressing. I could kind of see what it must have looked like before it burned.

The trip back was the reverse. A pleasant down hill, with broken cloud cover, and fairly consistent breeze, until the last 5 miles where the sky cleared up, the breeze stopped, and the bugs came out.

Probably shouldn't have tried to pull this one off in July, but... :?
