I took some friends from work on the Robbers Roost/Dacite Loop, starting from the Perata TH. We arrived at 7:20, later than planned, but the trailhead parking lot was only half full. We hit the trail at 7:30.

The forecast was sunny with a high in the mid-80's and a slight breeze. Cattle were grazing along the Lost Goldmine trail as we passed through there on the way to the saddle trail. Lot's of calves. A couple of times we ended up between a calf and it's mom, but each time the calf darted away before the mom got too anxious.

There was no breeze as we started up towards the saddle. By the time we reached the false saddle, some pained looks and perspiring faces made me think this was going to be a short day. We decided to continue on to the saddle and see how things were up there, with the hard stuff behind us.

A heavenly breeze greeted us at the saddle and the pained expressions turned to big smiles. Onward! It was all smiles the rest of the way. We stopped for a nice, long break in the shade of the roost. It almost felt chilly in there, but everyone loved it.

When we reached Fremont Saddle, I discussed options to go to the Pinon Pine overlook with a return on the Cave Trail, but the group decided to do that one another day. We headed back on Peralta and called it a day. This was a very fun hike on a gorgeous day.
