Couple of Ruts and Loose Rock = More Tech
Left the Butte Trailhead at 7:30 this morning and caught the sun coming up and over the ridge during the climb.
I got to the Summit about two hours later and chatted with a County PUD tower crew at the Summit for a little bit before I began my descent. The trail was a little loose in spots and there were rocks in places but that just added to the technical difficulty which was what I needed today. When the rock would get too much, you could get just off the trail a little bit with plenty of room for traction.
Smoke was there but not enough to smell it yet. It was a fun run down. No gps data this time since I damaged my good phone.
