Went to go see the sunset with Sarah from the overlook. We caught the end of twilight only because we were delayed by a 12" desert tortoise that we needed to photograph and an aggressive, 24" diamondback who wouldn't leave the trail. I threw rocks really close to him, but he didn't budge. I hit him with a few thumb-sized rocks and he finally moved off. We saw four or five deer on the way back.

Great hike with Fred. Did it counterclockwise for the first(?) time. More difficult than expected, but did make it all the way. Thank you, Fred! Still training for the Secret Canyon camping trip. Added "Gateway Access Loop Saddle" to Facebook.

Return to the trail? Hopefully, yes. Started at the Ringtail Trailhead and transitioned to Old Jeep Trail for a bit. First "training hike" for the Secret Canyon camping trip next weekend. D'oh! I'm pretty sure I left my 3 D Cell LED Maglite at the Ringtail Trailhead :( .

The view from the Lost Dog Overlook off Ringtail Trail was excellent!

Revisited an old friend (Lost Dog Wash Trail). Enjoyed the view from the overlook for a good long while.

Great hike with Ippartz (Sarah) in Ventura, California. We finished dropping off our children (an 1L, senior, and sophomore) at USC on Thursday, so we went to Ventura for a couple of days to ourselves. This is a nice hike and I did the "Plus" version of the loop.

Great Sunday morning hike with Sarah, Byron, and MeiMei. We were originally going to do Tom's Thumb, but opted for this never-before-tried-by-us trail. It was nice. Extended distance and AEG are due to off-trail excursions.

Great night hike with Sarah, Byron, and MeiMei. Byron and I thought we were all doing the Lost Dog-Old Jeep-Ringtail Loop, but Sarah and MeiMei had other plans. We hiked ahead of them onto Old Jeep and found a big scorpion. After some minutes passed as we paparazzied the scorpion, Byron and I noticed that the girls weren't behind us--they had zagged while we had zigged and were on the way to the Taliesin Overlook. We caught up with them and all was good.

Great afterwork hike with Byron. It was good to do the LDOJR Loop during the day.

It's been about two months since I last hiked with Daniel. Good early morning hike: started at 6:17 a.m. and done by 8:51 a.m. Even so, it was 104°F when we finished up. Visited the Cloud 9 ruins, the big, giant antenna, and the Shaw Butte antenna field.

Hmmm. This date is a guess and the hike data used is from the May 29 hike. Forgot to turn on my 60CSx. A quick up and down after work and before dinner.

Great adventure with Natasha and Piet! Piet and Natasha invited us to try it. Floated about 5.87 miles from about (33.562307, -111.534728) to (33.548393, -111.604046). In addition to Natasha and Piet, Sarah, Rebecca, Deborah, and Elizabeth kayaked. It was great fun! We went early, so we avoided the bulk of the tubers. Capsized once and found out that (after more than one year and many thrills and spills) the LifeProof case I have for my iPhone 4S wasn't life proof anymore--but, even though it leaked some, it did protect enough such that the phone still works.

Back on the trail again. Don't know when I'll be able to do this again--lots to figure out at the office. Started out a bit aggressive. Really wanted to get to the top, but had to turn around a bit above the upper overlook after a started hearing my pulse pounding in my head.
