Since everyone except little Denny has tackled the ship we had him lead through Boulder Canyon. It's a challenge to keep on trail since it resembles the dashed line you see on maps. He did a fine job too bouncing back with resilient character.

Everyone got up without issue steering clear of Bruce to keep from getting pushed or "dropped". The wind up top was fierce. Moment of the day was after 9 seconds waiting for the group photo. The camera blew off with the tripod.

9 split to 7 and we headed to Lower LaBarge Box. Out of the wind, a little warmer and with nice light this was the nicest half hour of the day. The denny dumpling gang matched harmony singing the bon voyage song. We all winced as Bruce and Denny exchanged hugs and kisses.

Continuing on, Ray wasn't feeling well. We've all been down that unpleasant road. Father Dave helped carrying his pack. Back on trail he bounced back!

Several of us alluded the final miles on the Dutchman 104 are not in our favorites list. Albeit a good trail, it's a subtle mundane roller coaster that drags on. On the same token I appreciate it as I vividly remember the days when Parker Pass was my limit.

No trivial hiked descriptions linked. It was great to see everyone. Maybe one of these years the Turtle & Eagle's New Year's hike could sync and cross paths at an early lunch peak with the Outdoor Lover hike!
