Matt and I did this short hike before he went to work. Even with the 6:30 a.m. start, it got warm and muggy quickly. At the top of the Linda Vista Loop, we opted to try the the direct, bushwhack route up to the ridge. It was steep but nothing above class 3, and involved some skirting around some boulders and cliffs. We topped the saddle and proceeded up to the second little peak on the ridge. I had done this hike from the saddle many times, but not recently. The trail was suprisingly easy to make out despite the recent growth.

Looked at the clock on the second peak and decided we didn't have enough time to complete the loop. Next time, all the way up the old trail to Pusch Peak. Couldn't find the signin jar. Who/what keeps carting those things off?

Kept looking for Preston's sheep, but only saw lots of scat. They're in this canyon, but elusive.
