I knew going into my Harney challenge that June and July would be the toughest months to get.
A good chunk of that is scheduling -- I just don't have the free time most of the summer. And some of it is admittedly weather because I like to enjoy my hikes. I do not enjoy 90-plus-degree hikes. Ew.
This morning, though, I found both the time and the right weather window. And as luck would have it ... it's June 30th.
Just in time.

I'm also happy to say I made it in 71 minutes -- one of my fastest so far.

The trail was moderately crowded, but it turns out that if you hike in a tank top and look determined, most folks move off the trail to let you by. (The crowd was pretty friendly overall. I high-fived at least three Packers fans.)
