Started at the Washington Park TH around 2:30 pm on Tuesday (5/5). Decided to go clockwise in the event I could not make it around the FR95 washed-out area at Bear Canyon (I am not much for attempting any climbing); doing so would reduce the out-n-back hike if needed. The washed out area was easily navigable. Camped around 5.5 miles from the TH at a nice established campsite. Used my Warbonnet Black Bird hammock ... extremely comfortable. Only downside was that the moon was bright for most of the night, given I only had the bug net on the hammock (no solid covering). Would have been nice to have had a campfire, but not allowed at this time. Wednesday at sunrise was "see-your-breath" chilly. On Wednesday, started out about 7:40 am and finished the remaining 18 miles of the loop and back down to Washington Park TH by 6 p.m. Best part of loop was the first 7 miles or so; scenic climb from TH to Rim and hike along General Springs creek. Water is plentiful all the way around loop going clockwise until about the midway point on the Houston Bros trail, then a couple small flows, and nothing for water along the Cook trail except for Dude lake (would only use that source as a last resort). Saw one Turkey, a few lizards, couple frogs, and plenty for other birds. Heard lots of coyotes and owls Tuesday night. Saw a total of four people during the entire trip.
