I didn't do any hike planning for this weekend, but I wanted to hike so I went with a favorite.

See Canyon was delightful as always, thick with vegetation, colorful in the morning light with cool temps (70 degrees at start). Once up top, I decided to head towards an overlook using FR 208E. I wanted to get some pics of the slope on the SE side of Promontory Butte. From there I headed back to General Crook and meandered along towards Drew, leaving the trail here and there to traipse around under the pines.

Had lunch at the top of Drew while enjoying a cool breeze under shady trees. Headed down Drew where I saw my first hikers of the day. First a family with small children going down. They decided it was too steep and were turning around. A few minutes later I saw a gent pushing up the hill. He wondered aloud why he went down in the first place. It was warm now and the exposed areas were getting uncomfortable. The remainder of my hike was downhill for me so I let gravity do its work.

Passed JJ not long after turning onto the Highline. He was doing the loop in the opposite direction from See Cyn. We chatted for a moment and continued along. Then a moment of panic :o. What if he beats me back to See Canyon? Total embarrassment! I decided to pick it up a little just in case.

Wonderful beat the heat hike and I didn't have to pay the clown today!
