Swift Trail (Hwy 366) was reopened this morning and as much as I wanted to get up higher into the pines, I first just had to hike into Marijilda Canyon and see the damage from the recent fire. I was shocked to see that Noon Creek was dry at the first crossing, I've never seen the creek dry before! I then headed up to the T and took the RTM trail up to the saddle and then down to the first big overlook. I was surprised to see that the "Marijilda Fire" never even entered Marijilda Canyon, it was Swift Canyon that burned. Happy, I turned around and headed back up and continued on down finishing the Noon Creek loop.

Lots of clouds kept the sun at bay and wildlife sightings on this trip were - 2 garter snakes, 3 tarantulas, many frogs & tadpoles in the pools and a white-tail doe on the drive home.
