Back out to Skyline with the kids. Mostly full lots when we arrived at 0715, but I found an open spot right next to the start. Crossed the bridge, then turned left on Mountain Wash. took that west to Turnbuckle, then west on that. Turned onto Granite Falls and took that to the start of Pyrite. Lots of dodder along Granite Falls and Pyrite. Easy climb up Pyrite, the incline isn’t steep on this side, with good footing. Lots of cholla just before the top. We turned onto Pyrite Summit and took that up. Quick stop on the summit for a picture, then went back down a short distance to avoid the tarantula hawks. After a short snack break, we continued north on Pyrite, dropping steeply down that side of the hill. Turned right onto Chuckwalla and took that all the way back to Granite Falls, where we retraced our steps the last 1.4 miles back to the trailhead. Warm, and I’m glad we finished when we did. I’ll have to keep pushing the kids for earlier starts.
