Started around 6, no cars at the trailhead. Took the loop clockwise starting with a summit of Kendrick.

Made it to the summit to find the LO unoccupied and locked. Doesn't take much from the views though as they're best off to the West away from the Mountain and LO.

Pumpkin was my favorite trail of the day. Descends quickly down the West ridge from the peak. Great views and progressively better wildflowers until the lower sections where they were in full bloom. Trail is faint in spots but route finding is not an issue.

Connector Trail is full of wildflowers and their fragrance. Trail is mostly overgrown. Orange flags cairn the trail, but they're often no taller than the surrounding grass and flowers. Route finding is easier once in Bull Basin where giant cairns dot the trail. Connector slides down toward Bull Basin Mesa and Dry Lake before entering Bull Basin. Quiet, low traffic, with great scenery in this area.

Bull Basin is a mess. Lower sections are nice, but the middle section has significant deadfall. 8-10 FS workers were cutting the trees and clearing the trail. Toward the top Bull Basin enters a serious burn area. Trail is more or less gone. Lots of charcoaled trees to climb over or work around. Because of this traffic is low.

Kendrick Peak Trail is entirely through intact forest, the rest of the loop is through burn areas. Lots of wildflowers and deadfall. Post-fire erosion has pulled a ton of obsidian to the surface on Bull Basin.

Saw two groups of hikers, one by the cabin the other on the way up Kendrick while I headed down.
