Tuesday we went on what turned out to be our most difficult hike this year. Our hiking friends, Captain Canada, Debbie Dewdrops and Lonesome Larry had been urging us to join them as they tackled it for the second time this month (we were unable to go the first time because we were in San Diego). Anyway we had to get up at 5 A.M. because it is almost an hour’s drive to the trail head and a 5 to 6 hour round trip hike. It was one of those rare occasions where we had to pull out an alarm clock (horrors).

We packed plenty of food and water, hiking poles and cameras and departed from the Wolfpack at 6:30. Red Fox, of course, was in heaven. She loves getting up before sunrise. Half of the ride is in dirt roads and the last mile or so is too rough for our truck, so we drove as far as we could and then packed ourselves into Larry’s jeep for the rough part. Arriving at around 7:30, we prepared our gear for the hike.

During the first mile and 1/2, we were in a sandy wash on level ground. This part was not bad except that you get a lot of little sandy pebbles in your boots. Soon enough we were at the point where we had to leave the wash and begin gaining altitude. We would be going from about 2,000 feet above sea level to about 3700 feet. As we went along the trail would get steeper and steeper, forcing us to scramble on our hands and knees at some points. Parts of the trail were covered with loose gravel and rocks (scree), so the progress was sometimes painfully slow.
