Another Bluff Mountain summit today. However, this time I was able to cross the route down to Terrapin off my list after hitting the summit. I hit the trails with Carrie, John and a couple of other friends from the dreaded social media site Instagram. Kyle accompanied us to the turn off for Ely-Anderson and then headed back with his pup, who was already beat from a big hike the day before. Five total dogs took part in this hike: Blanco, Chief, Bella, Lilly and Chloe.

We ran into a bunch of Boy Scouts on the way in, but did not see anyone else until we neared the trailhead again, but the parking lot was near its usual winter form and nearly packed when we got back. It is so dry out there right now, as one would expect, not a drop of water anywhere the entire day and all the grasses brittle and brown. However, the summit was still a worthy destination and offered its usual nice views and different perspective on the Needle. The route down to Terrapin is a little more rugged than Ely, but it went by pretty nicely and we all escaped unscathed. It got a little warm towards the end of the day, but we kept the dogs well watered and were enjoying the air condition of our vehicles by one.
