Went for a solo hike yesterday. The weather was really nice, and had cloud cover for much of the hike. I did not come across anybody else on this whole hike (it was the middle of the day on a Tuesday...). I started from the junction at San Juan road and Summit road, and hiked counter-clockwise. I thought this would be a good way to go, so I could look towards the Estrella mountains when hiking up on the Alta trail. The views from up on the Alta trail were great. You have excellent 360 panoramic views from up on the ridge. I was glad I brought a light fleece for this section of the hike, as it was actually cool and windy up there. The sections on the National and Bajada were a little less interesting.
