We missed the Gap turn and did the loop clockwise. Perhaps my first. I'd rather go down Campaign as it's a bit less against the grain on vegetation. Not much catclaw. Further up flimsy manzanita hangs over the trail often and takes it's toll on hikers in shorts.

The perspective change up to Fireline was a nice change. I mentioned the climb up Fireline to jj but it didn't seem to register. Believe it became crystal clear before we topped out...lol It was pretty hot but the rest of the loop was cake.

Tall but not super tall yellow wildflowers partially fill the fields. I swore in 2009 they were taller than @azdesertfather
A photo appears more waist level like this and perhaps most years.

The apples... Reavis Gold! As in eat the golden and skip the red. It's not a bumper crop year. Plenty now. Falling quick. Might be plenty for the tree climbers in a month, who knows? I brought home a pear to see if it ripens. Saw several trees loaded with what looked like choke cherries. Not sure how I missed 'em before, there are several loaded trees. JJ tried one, squinted, spit and said bitter. I respectfully disagree, 100% battery acid!

Bruce, jj and I hit this in 2012 one day later on September 1st. I was hoping for those exotic wildflowers. Apparently this year didn't measure up in rainfall.

The reverse Gap is tame compared to ccw.

Great hike as always, it would have been too hot for most.

Carried 4 quarts. Down to frozen block finishing up Fireline. Carried the block to melt it faster. Consumed 3.5, 4 easy in this heat if it wasn't frozen.
