A tough hike and climb. The area beyond the left fork of wildhorse creek is de facto wilderness due to the complete absence of trail maintenance. I made it to the saddle between Howard and summit 2 (about 100 feet from the top) and then descended due to dehydration (ran out of water). I will be back-- it is a true wilderness experience.
"Got tight last night on absinthe and did knife tricks. Great success shooting the knife into the piano. The woodworms are so bad and eat hell out of all furniture that you can always claim the woodworms did it."
