I've always wanted to check out the creek that's named after a dude and was pleasantly surprised with the variety of scenery both in the creek and on the way there.

I was the only vehicle at WP when I started at 3:45pm and with a freshly consumed energy drink and motivation to snag a few photos at Dude I picked up my speed to a "Jefe and Eagle Pace" and even jogged a few segments.


No animal sightings but fresh deer and javelina scat and prints galore all along the Highline along with colt prints from somebody's trusty steed.

I had to bust out the headlamp for the last mile but for the most part this section of the rim gets the very last bit of light just before complete darkness.
