Today was one of those days where I just had to turn off my phone and go for a hike. Haven't been up this trail in a while and figured the hike to the pass would provide a good workout.

Started around 9:30 and made my way to the pools, lots of blooming fairy duster lining the trail. Only encountered a handful of folks beyond the pools. I forgot how beautiful the trail is above Old Trail Camp, winding through the oaks and junipers and big boulders.

I took a break at the waterfall campsite, which has a wonderful log seat with a backrest. The weather was perfect for the last climb to the pass.

The pass was windy, as usual. Great views down the West Fork toward the snowy Rincons. I said hi to the AZT and cut my break short because I was getting chilly. As I left the pass, I noticed that Romero Canyon looked like it was getting rain, but up at 6000 ft I got snow flurries! They were short-lived and I made my way back down to the waterfall campsite to lounge for a bit on the log seat.

This trail is so beautiful, I would really like to do the canyoneering route in Romero Canyon one of these days. I stopped to take pictures of all the different wildflowers I saw- nice variety, hopefully we get more rain soon.

I reached my car and decided to wait and watch the sunset before leaving. So glad I did, it was a symphony of light and color on the Catalinas as well as to the west.
