felt good, ss 2.24

SS - perfect temps today. 35 to first grate, 47 to second, 1:09 to gate. Hung out with a couple deputy sheriff's at top until they got a dehydration call near the waterfall turnoff, so I beelined it down ahead of them to avoid the dust. A full fire truck and another vehicle were pulling up to the waterfall turnoff when I got there.

SS - got out late so hot from the get-go. Rode good pace first 2/3rds, but last 1/3rd was tough as heat was an issue. Had to stop to cool down. Garmin registered 97 degrees. Cool at top so enjoyed the breeze and shade and a sandwich. Descent was like hot air from the oven blowing on me. Lots of hikers out too.

SS ride today. Counted 251 hiking people on way up to the turn off for the waterfall and 294 total to Beeks. At least that many on the return as well - thick as flies. I had to park half a mile from the gate; it was crazy crowded. Felt pretty good today with nice temps. 1:36 to first grate and 1:06 to Beeks Gate. Bombed down hill really fast.
Closing Whiting must have sent everyone to Blackstar - I've never seen it so crowded. Ended up parking in the North 40, haha. Counted over 230 hikers. Guess I was a little bored on the climb in. Great ride, though.
