I always said that I would do Ute Canyon as a through hike/shuttle so I didn't have to climb out of the canyon. Well, today I proved myself a liar. My usual 2017 hiking partner, Jess, was on a hiking date with someone else so I decided to put in some mileage. I thought that this was going to turn out to be a 10 mile trek but it turned out to be a hair short of that. I suppose that is all for the good, since I ran out of water on the last 150 feet of the hike, my boots gave me a blister for the first time ever, and my thighs were chafing.
The weather was clear and warm without being hot. Little bit of a breeze helped cut the heat most of the day. The last 0.3 miles took me half an hour. I am slow as heck on the uphill.
