Friday Fitness Hike

Starting from the Trailhead Staging Area, I hiked a six mile loop: Pemberton, Scenic, Cinch, Escondido, Shallmo Wash, and Pemberton. The temperature was in the mid to upper eighties when I started and the low nineties when I finished.  I’m definitely not quite acclimated to these conditions yet – I was happy that I kept the hike short today.

Early morning on the Pemberton Trail:

I saw this snake on the Pemberton shortly before turning off onto Scenic. I heard a bike in the distance and waited until it passed to make sure that the snake didn’t get run over.
