Decided to avoid the weekend crowds and head up today. Started at 11 o'clock and there were still more cars in the lot than I expected. No set agenda today, just get some exercise and take more flower pictures. Since I haven't done much hiking lately, I figured if I felt too tired when I hit Sweetwater Saddle, I would just go back from there via the old mining road. Shortly into the hike I met a nice man from Oregon who asked me about the flowers. He said he wanted to go to the peak but wasn't real familiar with the area, so I stuck with him and we took our time reaching the top. He wanted to try going back via Hugh Norris and Esperanza, so I agreed to hike back with him that way. It was a mostly enjoyable hike with plenty of wildflowers hanging in there despite the lack of recent rain. The display in the lower elevations was fading fast (except for the chicory), but higher up things were still going strong.
