It's a great day: clear and cool, low 60s. Moderate winds on the high ridges. We park on Regency Dr. and go up Back Creek Trail to Murchio Gap.
Noah's pace is a bit slow and irregular. He insists on going first, and I can make him keep going by threatening to pass him.
Noah is a little paranoid about mountain lions. I tell him that mountain lions can tell which humans are cat-lovers and dog-lovers, and they only attack the latter, so we're safe.
We proceed to Eagle Peak. On the way down we turn right onto Coulter Pine Trail, which I hadn't been on before, and is in fact the ideal way to get back.
Noah does very well. He gets tired on the descent, but there is no whining.
