My first hike in 2 years! I didn't make it all the way to the summit due to a couple setbacks, but I'll get over it. The first set back came on the Goat camp trail while I was looking for a cairn on the left (east). I past one the right bad thought "that can't be it". I kept going south on GC for about 15 min. before I turned around. When I got back to the cairn it took me another 15 min. to find the first 50 yards of the trail. At last I reached the foot of the summit and went up the road that goes right. That road doesn't go to the top but by the time I figured that out I was afraid I didn't have enough time to go back down and then up the correct road. So, I turned back without having met my goal. I took Willow canyon back because I was making great time and it turns out I would have had the time to make the summit after all. :x
