Met Angela and Tom at the surprisingly mostly empty trailhead just before 0830. Headed east on Quartz Mine, making the side trip to Watson Overlook. Very breezy, with cool temps to start. Continuing east, we got on Tortuga Trail, then up to Javelina Summit, which is a nice little climb.

Once back down, we headed over to Skyline Crest Trail, which I think is one of the best in the park. Another side trip over to the Crest Summit, where we had a snack. Temps were warming up by then, but still breezy. We enjoyed the jets from Luke flying overhead. Continued north on Skyline Crest, then west on Lost Creek for a short distance, then Mountain Wash for a short distance.

Once at the junction with Turnbuckle, Angela opted to wait for me and Tom to head over to Valley Vista, which we did real quick, then headed back to the saddle to meet back up with Angela. Easy hike down Turnbuckle back to the parking lot.

Nice day, not many people out on the trails, and great conversation. Nice to see Angela again, and good to finally meet Tom.
