Quite the day; we had planned on an early start to beat the heat, getting up the Italian Spring segment of the trail to our first planned nap spot at Mica Secondary. However the Subaru with it's baloney skin street tires pushed us to a 0730 start.

Some 4x4 drama getting to the trailhead always makes for exciting times. I don't have any pics, perhaps Belinda will post some of her's.

The Italian Spring segment proved to be a challenge for everyone in the group, due to the heat, and elevation gain. I was in great need of a nap at Mica Secondary, feeling a little spent.

After a two hour break with lunch and a nap, we moved on to Reef Rock, Man Head, and then to Manning Camp for another break and to take on additional water for the return trip.

We all returned to the vehicles after sunset but before headlamp time. Then the anticipation of the drive out and potential issues getting all the vehicles out safely was on everyones mind. Much to everyone's delight there weren't any issues getting back to Redington Road.

Post hike fueling and hydration took place at Canyon's Crown on Tanque Verde Rd. Fish and chips for me, and beers.
