1st trip
got going around 0515
up mormon trail, west on national to bv lookout, corona loop counterclockwise, back down national and mormon
wanted double digits
ended up with extra credit when i overshot old man right after seeing a nice rattlesnake on the trail
didn't mind the extra mileage as much as the extra mountain bikers on desert classic
all good though
nice morning - humid, some cloud cover
a lot of people out

hit john up to hike mount ord this morning
it's been seven years
got going around 0440
cool and humid conditions, mostly shaded on the ascent
pretty well burned until the intersection with 626 at five miles
the upper part was fine, the nice pine and oak forest i remembered
tower was barricaded and no invite, so we didn't go up
took a short snack break
very hazy, limiting views
the trip down went quickly
kind of sobering to see how much has been burned
some erosion from recent rains, but also new growth starting
good workout, didn't even mind the road
thanks for hiking, lp!

john and i decided to hike in the mcdowells this morning
did the bell windgate loop from 104th street
actually had to park across the street since the trailhead was still blocked off from july 4th
got going around 0415
levee and connector trails to gateway loop, then bell pass, windgate pass, back on gateway loop, paradise and levee
no one else on the trails until coming down from windgate pass
had cloud cover the entire hike
highlight of the morning was breakfast at butters :)
good find, john
double digits with good company

a few other hikers and mountain bikers
nice sunrise, nice morning
