My Prescott plans fell threw, and I wanted something more than Elden. With the reduced storm threat I decided on this. Just to be safe, I started early. It was a great day, and I wasn't disappointed at all. The trail is very moist, and a little slippery at times, but all the rain has really helped the flowers. The alpine tundra flowers are really at the height of their season, though the sennecio is a week or so before it's peak. Other than some exercise and getting up to higher elevation, the alpine wildflowers were my main reason for wanting to do this.

It was the same reason a few weeks ago, but that got rained out above the saddle. Not today. The storms did start to build up after 11, but the winds in the upper atmosphere seemed to move them right past the Peaks very quickly. A small cell developed and rained on the north side of the mountain, but I was happy and dry the entire time.

Having gotten this in the summer and seen Arizona's tundra flowers at their peak, I won't need to hike up there before the freezes in September send the highest elevations in to winter. Thats good for me as I can concentrate on other things like Doyle and Fremont and leave Humphrey and Agassiz to the winter. It might be a little early to mention it, but I hope the snow comes in early December and heavy. I might like to overnight up there.

How To Put Out a Campfire
A campfire must be extinguished by drowning it with water, stirring with a shovel, and repeating that process until the campfire is cold to the touch. A campfire is still a danger if it has any trace of heat, and must not be left or abandoned. Wildfires can begin by abandoned campfires that rebuild heat on windy days and then blowing embers ignite surrounding grasses and brush.
