Wow! What a great loop! I was thinking that today would be a good day to do a long loop close to home. Well, I think I underestimated the heat factor. It got wicked hot! Temps started at 72 and ended at 98. Humidity was oppressive! Burned through my 3 liter pack before returning to the trailhead, which I hardly ever run out before the end. Regardless, that 247 trail is awesome! Winding in and out and up and down and through gates and along gates. Faint at spots, rocky, washed out, and overgrown, it really feels like wilderness! Great views of Skull Mesa and New River Mesa all along the way. I can't wait for the temps to come down so I can return to do Skull Mesa!
