Getting out on the spillway can be a bit tricky..
Half way across photos
Back on the old forest road that brought me to the junction earlier
I got off the trail at 3:36 pm, well ahead of any storm clouds as the weather was still hot and sunny. Driving home however around 5 pm I looked back in the direction of the trail today and you can see the big storm building. I am glad I did make the decision to try to get it all done in one day, even though the last 3 miles were very tiring.
