With the Peaks and Elden closed, I headed to Oak Creek Canyon today. Originally planned getting up a 5AM, shooting some soft water shots at the creek and then doing AB Young. Insomnia nixed that idea. Due to the 88 degree temperature forecast today, I decided Telephone would be nice with a little bit of shade opposed to exposed AB Young. Turns out I was battling a bout of slight food poisoning and my ascent was very slow. Fortunately there was quite a nice showing of wildflowers (although not great photo ops), especially numerous agaves blooming in different colors. Enjoyed a shady lunch at the rim with a nice view of the upper cliffs of the West Fork. Birds chirping did a nice job of drowning out the automobile traffic a thousand feet below. The creek seemed busy for a Thursday, but I guess I don't really go to Oak Creek much in the summer anymore so who am I to judge? Went up by the Pine Flat Campground (which is closed for construction) and found some solitude and dunked my feet in the cool water for a few minutes. Drove back to town to find the resurgence of the terrible smoke plume once again dominating the skyline over the Peaks. Today was a bittersweet day.
