DR Pax: KGB (from NC)
Echo Canyon TH at 0530 start! We added an additional 2.0 member, my daughter Amara, aka the tortoise 🐢. KGB joined us and after confirmation that the last car pulling up wasn’t Armstrong, we were on trail!
Started our hike up Echo in the gloom. A few pax, Stu and Shock Collar, made the turn around at our usual spot. All others continued up to the top 🔝! Tortoise 🐢 and I took about an hour up. We met the men and Panther on their way back down from the top. We made it just as sunrise 🌄 was starting! Tortoise 🐢 is also very careful on the way down unlike her Panther 🐆 brother. Thanks men for minding after Panther, especially Uhaul who waited with him at the bottom. Sweater Vest total trip was just a bit over 2 hours.
Not sure is Countarama and namearama happened as we were spread out on the mountain, some leaving early and some showing up late. If it did, then great! Thanks again for Uhaul staying around until me and my lovely tortoise 🐢 showed up!!! Great day on the mountain 🏔
