Bill Williams Mountain Trail
Nice cool mountain hike through pines and Aspen. Nothing to lose sleep over and the bottom is a drag returning. No Humphreys.
Beats the valley heat! Under ten hikers, most later in the hike.

Johnson Canyon Railway Tunnel
Enjoyed the unknown terrain (getting rare) heading in. The temp drop in the tunnel was a welcome reprieve. We hiked over/around instead of back through then took a break in the tunnel before heading back. Interesting history, amazingly little trace left. Just the grade, tunnel and very few other hints. Toasty heading back until clouds and light sprinkles saved the day.

Stone to Steel
Decent trail for middle of nowhere. I enjoyed it but would not recommend unless already in the area. Appears semi popular with vehicle campers.

Synopsis
Nice trio. Great to get in TWO new little hikes on the fringe of day hike range from the valley.

Forgot my hat today. Per usually, the HAZ Western ultralight in my pack saved the day!

Thanks to Denny for suggesting and thanks to Wally for driving
