Full disclaimer: I tanked it on the climb out and was praying God would get me up the last 2.2 miles. Joe's mileage is a little more for coming back down and carrying me out.
Wally wasn't feeling good but still drove us up, hiked the first couple miles, then hiked and napped on top until I dragged myself out. He rocks!
The hike itself was a good one and the trails are in pretty good shape. A couple small rock slides but the trail is still visible. This is a good loop. With the wildflowers putting on a show and Joe and Dave joining me it really was enjoyable for the most part. I would say if your going to filter do it at Hermits creek as it's on the way. Santa Maria spring has water in the tank you could filter but not as clean. The pipe was not dripping enough to filter from.
After the hike we took an adventurous ride on the shuttle and meet back up with Wally. We all went over to Maswik food court to eat before the drive home. Thanks to Joe,Dave and Wally for another great outing,like HAZ, :yr:
