Hiked the loop clockwise around the crater. A front moved through but it was still fairly warm at the bottom of the canyon. It rained for the last couple of miles.

KieferLearning Experience  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 17, 2009


I gave myself heat stroke on this trip (was confused, feeling drunk & vision was going in & out). I carried far too much weight, not enough water and grossly underestimated the heat. Had to collapse in the shade of an overhang in a dry wash, strip down to my skivvies and rest while sipping water and eating prickly pear that I skinned (for extra moisture).
I learned a lot on this trip.

Super pretty area. I'll return someday better prepared. The desert is nothing to fool around with!

An incredibly varied and beautiful hike, almost ridiculously taxing even in November.
