I nailed it. I'm 74 in a month.

Just back from Toroweap on Google Earth. The elevation change between the overlook and the river is 2800 feet. 5600 feet round trip. WAY outta my comfort zone, summertime or not.

Congrats on your youth and adventuresome spirit!

*edit* I returned to GE and researched the Lava Falls Trail. GHAAA!

The reservation system has completely transformed Jumbo rocks. Itís no longer a total zoo all day long. Itís pretty empty all day. And then People show up at sunset to camp and bail in the morning first thing. So nice and calm vs the endless circling line of cars.

Yes, much better.

It was also empty because we had snow flurries, overnight temps in the 30ís and 40-60mph wind gusts all night long!

My insulation and D2 keep us toasty.
