Overnight trip with Kaila, Kapri, and Milo. Sunny and warm when we started at 1230. Did the loop clockwise.

This was Milo's longest hike to date and his first ever backpacking trip, but he did a great job. There was much more water than I had anticipated and he took advantage of every opportunity to splash in the pools and have a good time. We arrived at our campsite around 1730 and set up camp while the setting sun illuminated the cliff walls above us.

I slept in my bivy sack overnight and woke up to a light sheet of ice and a partially frozen water bottle. I knew it would be colder and damp since we were by the creek, but I didn't actually expect it would drop below freezing overnight. We broke camp at exactly 0900 and were back to the trailhead a bit before 1400. Overall a very enjoyable loop, not sure why I waited so long to backpack the Superstitions and will definitely be returning.
