I got a later start than I was hoping for so had to cut off a few of the additions I made to this loop. Made my way to Battleship and didn't run into anyone until the turnoff. There was a group of around 15 people making their way up. I passed them and ran into two guys on the hairy part.

Descending Battleship, I followed the trail mostly, back to Boulder Canyon. Parts of Boulder Canyon are extremely overgrown. It made following the trail difficult at times; and also a sense of uneasiness as you never knew what was lurking just below the cover.

Heading up the creek towards Palomino. Arriving at Palomino and started up. Ran into another large group up on top.

On the way down, being pressed for time, I wasn't sure if I was going to take Dutchman or Black Mesa; I opted for Black Mesa. Upon hitting the junction with Second Water I ran into those two guys I saw on Battleship. One of them asked if I had any extra water. Apparently he didn't bring any water at all. His friend knew and let him come anyways. I was happy to lose a little weight and gave him one of my emergency bottles.
