Close call, Turtle vs. Deer on the Beeline to begin the day just north of Rye. A big buck in velvet.
No need for more coffee at this point.

We did this loop CW, starting in Turkey Creek. Easy walikin' for the most part, through the wet morning foliage.
The prevalent flora on the day were the large patches of Yellow Cone flower.

We jumped out and up on a ridge to check out an area we'd been to last year, then back down into Turkey Creek.

Once in Beaver Canyon, it was a "bit boldery" for a while. We would not hit the sidewalk like part for awhile.

Closer to Beaver Park, we hit a steady rain for about 20 min.

We decided to jump out, up a side canyon, directly back to the Car.

This hike is an 8-9 in the fall with lower temps/humidity and the colors. This time of year, a 6-7 with sweaty temps in the 70's
