A warm start quickly turned to a very hot day. The wide fire roads were easy to follow up until you hit the top. My lungs didn't like the massive dust that were shaken each time a car(s) passed by. Perhaps, next time, I will try to hike it on a not-so-warm-day; maybe days after a rain fall. Head net came in handy as the bugs/flies were terrible. We did have fun cheering the trail runners of Harding Hustle Trail Race. A dust devil was captured as we were approaching the 5 mile marker.
