After Saturday's disapointment at Guthrie Peak, I went to bed (Preston) early at 2 am, and set my alarm for 6 am on Sunday morning. Six am: "Screw this, I'm going back to bed". Got up several hours later, and checked the weather forecast. The Dragoons were predicted to be dry until dark. So I drove through strong winds and dust storms, and started into the Stronghold at 3 pm. To my surprise, the creek was flowing. The sun was shining but plenty of ragged clouds blew quickly overhead, and a stiff breeze blew. Half Moon Tank was overflowing and clear. Got to the divide where the clouds were thick, but no rain yet, so I continued on to the West Stronghold trailhead. Coming back up, snow flurries began to dance on Mount Glenn. The temp dropped to 40. Little waterfalls splashed down West Stronghold Canyon. Reaching Half Moon Tank again, the rain began, but I didn't care. It was great to be in the mountains, and in one of my favorite spots. I got back to the trailhead, wet but satisfied. And I didn't have to resort to putting on hated long pants. Perfect day!
