I love Christmas! :y:

But I'm not a real fan of Camelback. :-$

So I decided that the the only way I could resolve this contradiction of interests would be to celebrate the season on another peak nearby.

After recruiting a handful of reliable hiker friends Friday night, I went to Home Depot and got a great tree for $39 :y:

The morning weather was great. Kyle even dressed for the occasion! :D A cool breeze made the trip up the mountain amazingly pleasant despite the extra cargo! The climb took longer than usual, but wasn't too bad.

We spent time on the summit getting everything set up and looking good before heading down for the real mileage on our day via the circumference. Must be the warm fall this year, but Arnett is at least a week ahead of best colors. Next weekend should be nice, but two weekends from now might be even better!

Moderate for Arnett. At least a week to prime. Two weeks should be nice too. Sycamores 90% green. Cottonwoods just starting to turn with spotty bright yellow.
