Work finished up a bit early, so I thought I would treat myself to another trip up the mountain...got to the Gordon Hiryabashi TH about 2:30 to find it closed. I parked in the small lot right by the road and hiked through the campground to the trail. The first mile or so of the trail are OK, lots of burn evidence with a slow recovery, plus marching thtough a gravelly wash. Once you hit the saddle views open up big time, slowed me down for a while. I also got cell service back so I had to stop and finish up a bit of work...back to the fun! Made my way to the Sycamore reservoir and poked around, lots of water to be found here. Got back on the trail and followed to the end, even did a little bit of the East Fork trail because I could. First time back to this gem since February! Headed back the way I came, saw a white tail about a mile from the TH. It regarded me cooly, let me snap a few photos and then we each went on our way. Dark looming clouds as I was heading back but I just got a few sprinkles. By the time I made it down the Catalina highway I could see where the storm hit below the mountains, fun stuff. Had to stop by IKEA on the way home to get some furniture for the wife, there is an hour of my life I wish was trail time...Great hike, and I got to do it without seeing anyone else, my favorite.
