Bruce modified his 2016 masterpiece loop after I got the White Canyon bug. Passed a couple hunter camps heading in. Near record October rainfall has [ Turpentine Bush ] dotting the entire area with yellow!

4 miles went by quick. Then the guys worked overtime scouting routes I could handle. Karl rolling 55%-Genius 45%-Luck deciphered a route up a steep wall skirting disneyland terrain to freedom.

Small pools of water and narrow passages is the obstacle course in a nutshell. We had a longer than typical break then another where Karl went for a swim... seriously. Opted to show Karl the bat cave.

Route finding and such ate up the clock. We latched on to the new mission... tackle 6+ miles in 3 hours before natural light gave way to a dark chilly night. Karl picked up the pace and it panned out.

I've avoided creeks and canyons since my left arm and hand can no longer catch a fall or balance quick. It went about as expected. This type of hike takes a lot more energy. Started eating more 2 days ahead of the hike and easily consumed 3 times the calories vs 14.5 miles on trail. Fine for half. Then went from dragging to virtual zombie. Held back on aspirin and 5hr knockoff until the final few miles. Zapped back to life, the sun dropped, slow terrain gave way to virtual highway fields and wide flat draws. Love this place. Zero hikers encountered. Typical for the trailless remote backcountry.
