Thanks for checking back in with a report, especially the water report from Boot Canyon.   :great:

What were the day time temperatures at PJ?

Not sure about PJ, but the highest our temps hit on the trails was about 100 the first day. The cool front kept temps under 100 the next few days. The NOAA weather report was very helpful. I suspect temps will go back up after the effects of this front finish wearing off.

the temps dropping to low 60s at night were miserable w/ no sleeping bag [ditched those on advice].
Thanks for the report. I'm a bit astonished you would be advised not to take any bedding. Even down on the Dodson, sleeping on the hot ground in summer, it gets cool enough to want a blanket in the latter part of the night.  :eusa_think:
