Did the loop from Mountain wash-lost creek-skyline crest-crest summit-quartz mine. Pretty good elevation on skyline, but not too hard. Started a bit later than I wanted for a summer morning, got a bit overheated towards the end. Take lots of water, no shade at all from half way through if it's past 8 am.
