Camped out the night before to get a relaxed morning start. Tagged on an extra mile at the upper end to accommodate nonot's low clearance. Started off in refreshing 41~45 degree weather. The first swim kicked my butt carrying all my camera gear, prohibiting me to use my arms. Which turned sour anyhow as my camera apparently took the second swim of it's rather arduous life.

We move at pretty good click... then I lead the way through a short unnecessary bushwhack that eat up precious time as the canyon skillet cranked into simmer mode.

The lack of snowfall over the previous winter was showing signs in lower pool levels and even fewer in non-stagnant category. The death march over the ENDLESS boulders is still as good as always. With the closure of the lower trailhead we took the Hot Loop over to Jacks Canyon Trailhead. That 500 elevation gain coupled with the scorching summer temps was almost enough to turn our sanity into odd illusions...

I downed 216 ounces water and would've like a tad more. Took the umbrella expecting hot ending but honestly didn't have the energy to hold it.
On a positive note, the camera came to it's senses. Proving you can't keep a good camera soaked in the Arizona heat :)

If anybody ask nonot the hike was 19.2 miles :sk: It certainly felt like it!!! All things considered I had a grand ol' time! - Thanks nonot!

Alright, time to go squeeze a lemon :o
