Took a nice stroll up Mt. Elden today with a couple forestry buddies-great day for hiking in Flagstaff! Views from the top were amazing and definitely worth the climb. Saw a tiny patch of snow in the shade at the top, other than that it was all clear and dry, lots of lizards and stink bugs out lower down. Fun running down parts of the trail. Made it to the car, satisfied with a great challenging hike close to home.
