I really enjoyed this hike. The dark ominous cloud play combined with dashes of sunlight set a great tone. I hadn't had a good wilderness experience in a month so I was stoked to get out too. Only saw four other hikers, so the solitude factor was excellent. I started out the day getting up late, then taking a good two hours surfing HAZ trying to figure out what I wanted to do. Hitting a pristine spot to shoot sunset was a must, but I also wanted to hit a good hike in an area I hadn't been to yet, so the plan to hit La Barge Canyon View and then shoot the front range of the Supes near LDSP was hatched. This hike really fit the bill too, not too short, not too long, perfect to fill up my afternoon time frame. The whole hike has really good views, but of course the view at the end is just rediculous. I didn't go all the way out to the end of the ridge, but stopped at the western highpoint. Had a great time up there taking it all in. Got a little rain and a little hail on the way down. Just a great hike. Left with ample to time to hit my photography plans on my way back too.
