I did this hike without the Weaver's View spur. With one more weekend of really nice weather, I had to get out one more time. I've done all these trail before, but the one segment of the LDT I did 13 years ago, before I had a GPS to records the track and map in my computer. Enough of an excuse to get out and get a quick morning hike in before taking the kids to a birthday party.

I did this one counter clockwise. Arrived to an empty lot and had my choice of the numbered parking spaces. number 58 seemed like an appropriate number for the Stillermobile. Heading up the Bluff Spring trail gave me a reprieve from the sunrise in my eyes heading east on the LDT, plus it got all the elevation gain out of the way early. The scenery seemed better than usual with the clouds casting shadows on the mountains. The air was very clear, which became very surprising on my way home along Route 60 seeing how hazy it was.

Didn't see my first hikers until the descent from Miner's Summit, then I saw 10-12 the rest of the way back to the trailhead. i was feeling very good and the idea of heading up to the top of Miner's Needle seemed nice, but the afternoon's plans didn't give me enough time.

The lot was full when I got back, big difference from when I left. Temperature was very cool and breezy throughout, absolutely perfect weather.
