Noticed lots of wet looking clouds hanging about on Four Peaks on the way in this morning. Only two cars in the lot when we arrived at 8AM. Headed up Brown's Trail through the continuously passing clouds. Missed a turn and dead ended, called the attempt on Brown's Peak as we were there to hike Amethyst Trail. Eventually found the Amethyst Trail and followed it until the end at the mine gate. Returned to Brown's Trail and then followed Amethyst down to 4 Peaks Trail and back to the parking lot. Amethyst to the mine was easy enough to follow and just a bit grown over. Amethyst from Brown's Trail down to 4 Peaks Trail was hit or miss. On a well defined trail one minute and completely lost then next. I couldn't believe how quick and completely the trail disappeared. I think it would have been easier to follow going up instead of going down. Lots of bushwacking and leg shredding. Fun day. Perfect temps. Awesome hiking through clouds!
