1st trip
Started about a half hour before light and finished just after sunset. Breezy and brisk for a couple hours then fab. Quick chat with Kyle and company waking up near Whiskey Springs. First time I glanced at the gps we were at 7.4 miles and 2k. Was it possible I under planned?

Covered a new mile to myself on Hoolie after Trap Canyon. After 15 years I finally have #111 complete.

Next up was one mile off trail to keep the loop in respectable mileage range. Aside from near the Tortilla TH this is as close as Peters & Hoolie get to each other. Several all stars have done it and there is a nice [ description ] too. It would suck in shorts. Wearing pants it wasn't terrible. With a break in the middle we slow poked the mile in 1h 10m.

Bruce wasn't impressed with terrain/views after passing Trap Canyon. With water running and Tortilla Peak towering I think we both enjoyed the views again heading down Peters Trail. On the same token each step seemed annoying. Fatigue was a factor and it was about the warmest of the day.

We lunched mid way down the canyon at a nice cascade. Rain drops blew in from a good angle. Not only was it blue sky above, the nearest cloud seemed suspiciously far.

Temps slowly dropped as we finished up after sunset. Nothing mesmerizing, just a good ol' loop in the Superstitions.
