Yet another amazing hike in the beautiful Catalinas! :y: It's been a few years since I'd done this canyon and I was itching to hike it again this winter. I was struggling up the climb to the ridge due to recovering from a cold, 4000ft of elevation gain, and it's been awhile since I've been to 'higher' altitude. :sweat: The creek was flowing pretty good with many small waterfalls on the main canyon and the many side canyons. Once on the ridge there was a good 1-3 inches of snow up there and when I got behind the cliffs with the Window in it, there was a good 6-12 inches of snow to stomp thru. :o It made for amazing photos though! After taking a lunch break in the Window, I pushed further up to the south side of Window Peak and climbed out to that lesser 7395 peak to soak in the amazing views and take a half hour cat nap :zzz: before turning around hiking back down...
