Another quick hike to go for the burn. From up on Black Top Mesa you can see the Sawtooth fire was stopped just beyond Weavers Needle. It seemed to be pretty much contained within the Terrapin, Dutchman, Peralta perimeter. Marsh Valley, Bull Pass, Cavalry trail and Boulder Canyon trail all look good. New rule, any trail that is not burned is good. The question now is what burned east of Bluff Spring Mountain? Mine was the only vehicle at the trailhead starting at 4:44 am and the only vehicle when finishing at 8:41 am. I think that's a first for me. The last 45 minutes it started to get warm but I only drank 2 quarts and had free run of of the trails so a that's a win. Lots of bunnies, lizards and birds out. I saw one snake (a racer) which moved too fast for a photo. There is a lot of dry grass out there so hopefully the rains come soon.
