The second time I guided the group on this one with the same game plan as November. I called these two the bookends on the winter of 2004-05. Two of the best months for this hike, as you have a little more daylight to play with than December and January, plus you don't have to deal with too powerful a sun and excessively warm temperatures. These are things that can cause problems on this hike due to its long duration and lack of shade.

We embarked on this adventure right after a storm that dumped some significant precipitation over the area. This made for an exceptional day with a dramatic start in the low clouds and fog at times. Nothing beats the desert right after a good rain event! :D Since this had been a reasonably good winter for storms, we had the added bonus of a very green desert floor. This makes for a nice finish as you drop down from the Flatiron on the way to Lost Dutchman SP. :)

We skipped the side trip up to 5024. This was my favorite of the ridgeline hikes because of the clouds and wetness! :y:
