Started out almost chilly :y:

We dropped down into slippery steep Dane Canyon. Bruce had Culture Club on his mind and tumbled for us. Either highly skilled or lucky beyond words it all worked out. Once in Barbershop the first two miles were my favorite. The views and temps were just dandy. Then it was repetitive, warming and my feet became the view more and more.

Out of Barbershop we did a repeat of East CC we just hiked last month. Compared to Barbershop it's a highway with use trails. Next up Lockwood Draw looked mighty inviting. We popped out around an obstacle then noticed more up ahead. During a five minute break the local mosquito blood bank declared war. Throw in 2pm and jumping out of this canyon seemed like the logical choice.

Upon topping out we took FR96C back to the car. This turned out to be my second favorite portion of the hike. We had tall pines all day. It was a bonus to stroll along this fading old road as a nice breeze pushed away the heat of the day.

It's been four years since the eagle dropped the tortoise on battleship. Great to see he's getting his confidence back and knowing who to trust. Ray switched to highly sophisticated water and it seemed to make the difference. Turned out to be a great late summer hike for all.
