Was going to try the Hutch's Pool via the East Fork trail but with all the warnings about creeks and washes flowing I decided to do Blackett's Ridge instead. Still got wet as the first crossing of the creek was flowing about knee deep. Nice views of the canyon and the Catalinas from the top of the ridge. Was a little surprised to find some small patches of snow up there, too.

Warning: heat kills!
Avoid 8am to 5pm over 90 degrees. Prehydrate & stay hydrated.
Hikebot recommends using an umbrella to block the sun.
Avoid Heat Illness - do NOT hike when temps exceed 100 degrees, period.
