Excellent. Now I have a target and something to compare against. I'm partial to Horse Heaven Trail, too — less people, steep but not slippery, nice flowers and even a few Sierra-like rocks. No way I'm to the top in 45 though. And I'm pretty dead by the time I get down, so can't see doing it before work, unless my work has lots of nap time. You youngsters can go on ahead...
Only been down Bubb Creek once. Almost stepped on a rattlenake. Scared the crap outta me.
