This was the last stop on our 3 day road trip coming back from Alamo Lake.
Lauren followed Addie & myself out from Alamo to join us for this most "must do" trail of the entire trip.
We arrived at the almost full parking lot, geared up and headed up .....

From the start I was very impressed with the layout of this trail. Every step and switchback has been very well done and we took our time stopping at each granite plaque & info sign along the entire way. Reaching the top of the saddle the trail became a little sloppy from the day before rain & snow all the way to the observation deck. The views down and across from the top of the granite boulders and snow capped mountain range were beautiful!!!
We then took the trail down to the fatality site arriving with others and a couple all ready there.
A quite time spent at the site paying our respects and each taking in to our own what took place there and sharing some personal thoughts.
We arrived back at the start and spent some time talking with the well informed Ranger about the mountain and other question we had before parting ways with Lauren and continuing on to Safford.

Very well designed memorial trail, very humbling experience & a hike I will remember forever.
