We took the standard route up Carr Peak from the Ramsey Vista Campground enjoying the good trail conditions. Towards the top there are nice stretches of wildflowers which is the norm after the abundant summer rains. Reaching the summit we spent about 30 mins on the summit enjoying the views and a beverage. We had split into two different groups from camp so as we were leaving the second group arrived to checkout Carr.

Heading down we continued over to the Crest Trail and stopped briefly at Bathtub Spring. Some of the group turned off at the Hamburg Loop but a few continued on the Crest Trail to Miller Peak. Unfortunately before we reached the Miller Peak turnoff the rain and hail started coming down pretty hard. We slogged to the top and took in the view but only for a moment as the rain continued but fortunately no lightning. Part way down the summit the second group arrived so I went back up with them to hike with them a bit. The rain kept up so we headed back down to the Crest Trail. Even in the rain the Crest Trail is a very nice stretch with Aspens, Spruce, and assorted wild flowers.

Eventually we made it back to the Hamburg Loop turnoff but I had no takers for the loop. The loop makes it's way around the south side of the Huachuca's with views into Mexico. It then reaches Bear Saddle before heading back to the north and the Hamburg Mine area. Nice foliage and water around Hamburg which is the upper part of Ramsey Canyon. To get back to our campground I split from Ramsey Canyon and headed over to Comfort Springs and back to Ramsey Vista Campground.
