I traded Ford Canyon for some extra sleep. I made it to the peak by 3pm after 2.5 hours of climbing. A technician at the top and the summit log confirmed that it was snowing earlier in the day. I thought if anything there would be a patch of ice somewhere, but there wasn't. The technician also said someone had rode a quad to Peak 4018 and was taken off in a DPS chopper. :sweat: This is why we can't have nice things.
The wind made it extremely chilly at the top. Before I could even have a snack, it was time to bail.
Flower show was okay, and most of them don't seem very healthy. Mesquite Canyon has a good amount of water in it... Made me really bummed out that I didn't have enough time to hike it all the way down. :(

Nice to finally be out again after more than a month of downtime.
