It was so hot in the western supes this weekend. 82 in February, all day in direct sunlight, makes me never want to hike here again. The only redeeming aspects of this hike, in my opinion, were the actual climb of the battleship ridge and checking out La Barge Box. If I had to come back to this area, I would avoid second water trail all together and maybe head up the Boulder Canyon trail from Canyon Lake. Also, if I had planned ahead, I realize I could have looped back to the second water/boulder canyon junction by heading north from La Barge Box instead of backtracking to the saddle.

TL;DR: TOO hot for "winter"
