Incredibly awesome weather for April 30. Highs on the peak barely hit 50. :y:

The morning featured good breaks of sun, but by afternoon it was solidly cloudy with quite a few showers visible from the peak. This pushed our decision to skip the longer Rim trail loop and we only got sprinkled on a couple of times on the way down.

Quite a bit of deadfall in the stretch of Abbey's above the ranch, but the last stretch to the peak was nicely cleared. A little poison ivy along Parker Creek kept those of us who are easily affected by this devil plant on our toes. Literally.

Not sure why I'd never done this one before, but glad to knock it off the list. Thanks 9L for the idea, planning and driving. :)
