Last Day of my Trip up on the Rim a couple of Weeks ago...

Got a late Start due to Rain all morning so I just decided to wander, both with the Escape and on Foot...Decided to take the Long Way Home going out 300 to the West End and down through Strawberry and Pine...Stopped a few places before hitting Knoll Lake just to check out some Rim Views...

At Knoll Lake, I ended up only Hiking around a Third of it for several Reasons...There are just Footpaths here, no real Trail and the first part going CCW was either really Rocky and very Steep Bank, plus the Weather started threatening again and I didn't want to get stuck in Rain halfway around...With the late Hour, I also wanted to be able to stop for some more Rim Views on the way out to catch the Storms, a possible Sunset and maybe spot some Elk...So after going about 1/3 around, I went straight up and caught the Road back...Checked out the Dam area a little and then hit the Road for the gradual Drive home...

Caught some nice Views on the Rim and was still on 300 as it got Dark and the Torrential Rain started...And of course, that's when I spot an incredible little Herd of Elk, with several nice Bulls Sparring and Frolicking in a Meadow...If the Light and Rain hadn't been so bad, I could have gotten a few Nice Shots as they were tolerant of me being there, but I really had no chance in those Conditions...

The Rain stopped completely by the time I hit Payson and it was Pedal to the Metal for Home...I've had better Trips up on the Rim, with less people and slightly more Stable Monsoons, but hey, it's still better than not going at all and you sure couldn't beat the Temps that Weekend...I'll always enjoy being out there.... :)
