I ran up Black Star Canyon to a little ways past Beeks Place. At about 2.4 miles in I accidentally took a turn that lead down to the barren river. I retraced my steps and got back on track. It added about an additional 1/4 mile. Because of this, I ran up until my watch hit 10.25 miles before turning back around to make this as close to the 20 miles out-and-back as possible. I carried 36 oz of hydration, a gel, and an energy chew, but I only ended up drinking about half of my hydration. There were some relatively steep parts, but all in all it was a long steady grind up. I started at 6 am and finished right as the sun was really starting to heat up.
