Atascosa Peak
I know. I know. I know. I just did this one a few weeks ago.
Next time I go I'm going to check out the West side of the mtn.

6:41 - On the trailhead – 42 degrees
6:52 – Gate
7:16 – First Overlook – Didn’t stop here and rest because the saddle is only 5 minutes away.
7:21 Big Saddle – stashed some water here.
7:43 – rested at the window.
7:50 – left Window
8:10 – Saddle above window
8:16 - cairn at beginning of the saddle between the lookout and the peak. – rested and stashed some water here.
Phone died.
12:37 – back at the truck


Today I wanted to check out two balanced rocks from my previous trip. When I left the house this morning it was 37 degrees. I decided to take advantage of the cool temp and jog some of the trail. No minutes later I decided to just walk.
Managed to find one balanced rock but the other is hiding. I first saw it in a photo and on the way today I could see if from the saddle above the Window but I lost it on the Atascosa saddle.
There has been some recent activity here. Newer Shoes. Lots of Pedialyte bottles.
-
There was this really cool overlook I wanted to check out but….. BEES. I have Beedar.
I stood totally still and listened and looked until I could see the hole they were going in and out of.

For today I saw enough and didn’t get stung.
No clouds - No breeze - no water in the tank.



The window has been a Race against myself every time I could up here. This time 62 minutes. I’ll take that. I think last time it took and hour and 20. Fastest time is 55 minutes. Part of doing this hike today was possibly because I was worried that I'm slowing down as I get old(er).

I believe the window is the 2 mile mark.
Needed a fast challenging hike today. This fit the bill.
