Not many choices to get out of the 114 of the valley on Saturday.

After a short wait, we headed for the high country with Bubby in tow.
There were more than 8 cars in the lot already
Joe explained why AsBens are popular. Some more than others. A humid climb to the saddle.

We left Bob back in the saddle again and made our way down the Bull Basin Trail, on our CCW Loop. There has been some recent clearing in the upper reaches, but there seems to have been more new fallen, than cleared. Still like this trail, with it's good views to the west.

We always surprisingly run into people on this back section in Bull Basin. This time, a group of 6, going the other direction.

The Pumpkin trail is aptly named. It always kicks mine. I still love the views. aspens, grasses and pines.

We talked to the Fire Lookout volunteer for a bit, but the swarms of flying ants got to be a bit much.... Plus the T-Storms were getting real, real close and we were at the tallest peak in the area.

The temps dropped 20 degrees as we started down. The 4 mile walk from the top rattled off smoothly and we only cranked out the umbrellas for the last 1/2 mile of steady rain.
