After breakfast and some last-minute futzing with gear, we drove to Hermit's Rest. Although I had done the Boucher trail twice before, and never thought it was at all scary, others have, and I was wondering how Brianna would do. Fortunately, she had no problem with it. She never hesitated or expressed concern about the exposure.
Although I had never camped at the potholes below Yuma Point, on my last pass thru the area I checked them out and found that it was a really nice place to camp and, at that time, the potholes were full. I was expecting them to be full this time too. And thankfully they were.
