Saw the sun peeking through the clouds around 11am this morning and thought it might be a good day to get out, I was rethinking that when I got to the trailhead, the sky was dark and it started to sprinkle. I started up Marcos De Niza and the rain let off quickly, leaving partly clouded skies the rest of the way. Nice.

I passed a few groups on Marcos De Niza, but didn't see a single soul on Guadalupe Ridge until just before Eagle Pass. It was pretty cool to have the entire ridge to myself. Feels like the only place on the east side of the park where you can get some form of solitude.

After taking a break at the Buena Vista TH bench, I headed back down on National. Overall less people than I expected considering the holidays, but signs of life picked up as I approached Fat Man's Pass. Checked out the trail that connects Guadalupe Ridge to Hidden Valley for a little extra AEG. Took Ridgeline and Pima Wash back to the parking lot after coming off Mormon Loop, which is much more interesting than the dirt road back to Pima Canyon.

Overall, great day.
