Up the Heart Trail and across the ridge to Elden, then down the Elden Lookout Trail. It was great to have a second vehicle so we didn't have to do the Christmas Tree Trail connector. It was a super nice day for a hike, especially when we had expected rain. It was sunny most of the day, and the views were pretty darned good.

Although I've been to Elden summit quite a few times it was the first time I'd been up into the fire tower. The tower lookout person, Rod, was very friendly. He said his boss is encouraging the public to visit the towers to see what the lookout people do.

Didn't see any wildlife, except for the butterfly, but the flowers were nice.
