Finally had time to get out for a hike, sadly my first of the month...pulled up to the TH about 5 to get in some fun. Certainly warm out this afternoon, but I did get some late cloud cover that cooled it down a few degrees. I put together a loop on the fly to knock out most of the high points in the area, no real big peaks but at the end of the day I had squeezed over 1100' of gain out of only a bit over 3 miles. I love this little mountain, surprisingly rugged for a short in-towner. The hillsides were simply aglow with flowers, brittlebush in full bloom, and good show from the creosotes too. Dang, I need to get back into hiking shape...
