Tyler Peak-Baldy loop, Buckhorn Wilderness

A quick little loop trip up the Tyler Peak way trail to summit Tyler, then pleasant ridge travel over to Baldy, then descended the Maynard Burn way trail. Great short loop on fun terrain. Thanks to (now) Sequim-resident Will for joining only six days after his UTMB finish. First run for me in the Pearl Izumi Trail N2 V2, which felt great.
