T'was a nice morning breeze strolling across Highline Trail from the Hatchery to Horton Spring. We stopped near Horton Spring for a break before ascending Horton Springs Trail to the rim. Bruce went to wet his sweat rag or such and I hopped a barbed-wire fence to go for a pee. I just missed the clearance over the fence. Three inches of duct tape would have saved the day but I did not come prepared. By chance on the side of my knee and just before the major knee-flexing ascent.

The intermittent sprinkler made a mess and figured it would be wise to cut the hike short. Bruce did a shorter loop than planned while I did the shortest option walking FR300 over to Babe Haught. I took a thirty-minute break when he left, thinking it might dry up as it didn't seep if I didn't move. Got lucky, zero blood loss thereon.

Several folks were camping along FR300. Generally wimpy setups. Nothing camp grasshopper caliber. I didn't wait long at the planned junction meetup before Bruce arrived for lunch. It warmed up moments off the edge of the rim heading down. Took it easy heading down. Perhaps over cautious but it was a nice little loop otherwise.
