We can reflect on life in many ways. Sometimes we use pictures, words, videos, and memories. If you are lucky, you may be able to re-live some of them in person.

First off, I want to thank Hank for graciously allowing me to use an extra GPS of his. Mine is no longer reliable.

Today, I got a late start and decided to amend my plans. I would mostly follow the ridgeline and glass from prominent areas.

I set out at about 840am which is pretty late for me. It was still in the 40's and very pleasant. As I hit the divide trail, I thought of all the people who I've encountered here through the years. I've made many friends along this route, some HAZ members and others who haven't yet joined or occasionally stop by. I could hear flowing water along the trail and when I got to my off-trail turnoff, there were pools of water where sometimes I'd seen only a trickle but mostly it is totally dry. I glassed a little bit on my way to Mt. Peeley. The views from the summit were amazing.

I took a direct line to the ridge from the summit and glassed at different highpoints. I stayed north of Peak 6,910 and from here I headed down to the 6,600 contour(GPSJoe's last chance route). I headed west a short distance where I encountered some 6ft manzanita which slowed progress. Next, I headed up a familiar rockfall back to the ridgeline about .3 of a mile from Sheep Mountain. I cached 3 quarts of water for a future trip and also checked on two other caches. Both caches are now good for washing my hands or cooling off.

Someone has taken items from the register and torn out pages. There was a fire ring on the summit; maybe they needed paper to start a fire. I broke up the fire ring with its garbage and broken bottle and tried to make it look a little more natural. The views were amazing I could see the snow capped SF Peaks and Kendrick and others to the North. I was a great day to be outside in such awesome surroundings.

The GPSJoe poster is still in good shape and the road is a little rutted but most passenger cars can easily make it except maybe those that ride really low.
