Did this nice big loop CCW and threw in a scamper up to the top of Black Top Mesa from Bull Pass for my morning break. Terrific 360 degree views into the heart of the western Supers from there. Met a couple HAZers at the TH and passed two other hikers near Marsh Valley doing the same loop but from the opposite direction. A few people on the Dutchman and Second Water near the trail-head but otherwise enjoyed the solitude and lovely weather. Saw a nice tarantula on the Cavalry Trail.

No water anywhere except at the bottom of Second Water, and you always see it there. Nice to know where there is "save your life" water in case of need. A beautiful day and a fine stretch of the legs.
