Ok, let's get it over with quick on the bad stuff.
1. The bugs
2. The heat
3. The bugs
4. The road up could use a little grading, but I got a jeep, no biggy.
5. The bugs
6. Who ever put that one rock in the path that I twisted my ankle on.

The Good:
Great hike up though.  Enjoyed the views as I went and shot a few pics while there.  The trail was dry for the most part, only a few spots from down trickling streams were present.  The people weren't really bad either. Small groups through out the day, but no major groups. Well except for the bugs.

The trip down went pretty well, made it past where the major rock started, thinking, "yes, made it without injury".  Spoke too soon.  About 20 minutes from the trail head, well, I found that one rock that has hunted me since I was young.  Always seems to jump out and ruin a great hike.  I eluded him on the last one, he never caught up, but he got his payback.

Overall, great trip.  Hard on the cardio, but the views were worth the workout.

Oh, and I'd like to thank all of you who were there that day for pointing out that I was hauling too much of a load.  Believe me, it will be remedied before the next outing.
