Red Top. 3/31/2014
Nice day today for this hike it is not hot.
Vit is finding new easy way to get on our trail.
There is only some mild bushwhacking.
Out first look at the Red Top.
We will have to decide on the route we will take. Will it be the old tried route or a new one?
First we have to get down.
It is about a mile on flat now.
This climb is mostly boulders.
One of our stops.
It is still long way up.
So far not bad.
This new route is somewhat overwhelming Martha. Too many huge boulders to climb
It is from one boulder to another, slow going.
Our whole group at the top. Only Vit stayed lower.
Now we have to find a way down.
It is easier than going up.
Some obstacles in a way.
We are altogether.
Blooming cactus, not that many flowers are blooming this year.
It is a long way down.
We found our stashed water and are waiting for John but where is Hersch. That is a mystery.
We are back up and still have some sunlight.
Sun is down and it is not warm anymore. Anybody for ice-cold beer?
Here is John and Hersch they made it. We can drive home now.
