Another night hike at MMRP: Escondido, Cinch, Scenic, Pemberton, and back on Shallmo Wash.

The Javelina Jeadquarters were still being disassembled as I left Four Peaks Trailhead. There were still a few pieces of equipment there when I returned. I saw route markers along nearly my entire hike. The only section that wasn't marked was the last little bit of the Shallmo Wash Trail. It seems that the racers were routed into the actual wash for some reason.

I was passed by a pair of mountain bikers as I was returning on Shallmo Wash. Aside from them, I saw no other trail users.

My pack was slightly heavier tonight due to bringing along my tripod. I took a few shots from the Scenic Trail Ridgeline. It was nice to get exposure bracketed shots at the base ISO of the camera.

While hiking that ridgeline, I saw a number of small reflective dots (in addition to the Javelina Jundred signage). These turned out to be the eyes of birds, most of which flew away as I approached. One did not, however. I approached within about four feet and got a few photos (I hope). I was lucky that it didn't fly away as I fumbled with getting the camera back into the correct mode for shooting hand-held after tripod use.
