Great job wrangler88! Now you have the drill down and the bug has bitten, you now have a lifetime of exploring to do and way more space to check out than GUMO. You will get over the nervousness of finding water but it is something to work at and perfect. That was a super light pack, base weight around 7 pounds?Your total loop was right at 26 miles and you hit it just right.
Great trip, Wrangler88. I figured you'd get bit and you did. And I agree, the Red Rocks section of Blue Creek Canyon does sort of remind of southern Utah. Hope you made it back home before the Super Bowl started: it was a doozy.
Any specific reason to start OML from HW?

Starting from Homer Wilson allowed me to cut out the mileage going in and out of The Basin. I'm actually really glad hos things turned out. It allowed me to get my biggest climb both days out of the way right off the bat. Going up Juniper Canyon really wasn't too bad at all. If I had it to do again, knowing what I know now, I'd set my trip up the same way. I really enjoyed it.
Here is the video to part 1 of my OML trip. Day 1, hiking across the Dodson and looking for water. Then finding rain and taking in the views of the desert.
