A sad farewell hike to the beauty of the pine country before the man shut us out. Of course, I don't think the man was wrong... I just don't like the idea that I can't enjoy my public lands because there are idiots out there who can't respect the natural environment.

It was a delightful day - not as hot as we thought it might be. In fact, by the time we arrived at the pools it wasn't quite hot enough to jump in that icy cold water. Overall there was much more water on the mountain than I'd expected, and nearly every spring and regular filling hole had at least a trickle. It bodes well in such a dry year, and I hope that it means that our Catalinas may escape this fire season without as much destruction as some of our other Sky Islands.

Our hike back up to the car was much more pleasant on the Aspen Trail than the Lemmon Rock Trail is. I had not been on that stretch of the Aspen Trail since the fire in 2003, and found that not only is the trail in far better condition than it was before, but that the burn opened up some unique views that I very much enjoyed. May become a regular haunt of mine ;)
