Early morning exercise hike. Started about 30mins before sunrise and hiked with the rising sun. 60 degrees at See Canyon TH at the start and stayed nice and breezy all morning. Saw several elk, a lone deer & an owl by the time I reached the end of Drew Trail on top of the rim. It appeared as though every campsite on FR9350 was occupied. I had an encounter with a black bear on General Crook. Although brief, I was hiking fast enough and quiet enough to get within 50ft of the bear. Once we saw each other it dashed into the trees and quickly vanished. They truly are beautiful creatures. See Canyon was as wet and muddy as I anticipated after yesterday's rain, with lots of moss and mushrooms. I passed plenty of hikers heading up See as I made my way down. Only stopped to take a few photos and pick up trash. Temp was 75 at finish. Good start to the weekend.
