The moon has been spectacular the past few nights. It was still glowing big when we awoke this morning. It was fun to watch the sun come up and the moon go down at the same time. The high yesterday was 53 with a low of 32.

Eerie that you had a pic of the moon today. I was coming home from my mom's and the moon was huge and surrounded by wispy clouds and I thought to myself I hope you get a pic because it is really awesome and you did! Thanks. Sure wish I were THERE to see it in person.

We enjoyed our climb up Bullhead, and our stay Thurs. night, complete with your great vittles and we had a great morning descending Bullhead again. But we were and still are worried about a middle-aged woman we encountered about 3 hours up the trail, dressed very casually, wearing tennis shoes and carrying a half bottle of water, who was clearly distressed. She was with 4 young people who had "sent her ahead while they stopped to rest" so she wouldn't "slow them down later". Their plan was to ascend Bullhead and descend Rainbow. Reluctantly, we advised her of the sheer folly of their plans - it was already Noon and they still had probably 4-5 hours of the most difficult climbing up the Bullhead, just to reach the top, before they started their Rainbow descent (probably dark at that point). Clearly we scared her more than she already was, but at that point, with her in tears and totally exhausted we felt she needed to know the truth. We think she was the mother of one or two of the young folks she was with,but clearly they appeared to have no concern or compassion for her welfare or her obvious stress. Do you, or anyone reading this, have any knowledge of this woman's fate?

I agree - in this case no news is certainly good news.
