Karl told me we could see Elephant Rock Arch from this side. Well, maybe not.

Fire had taken its toll on the ascent, but the top of the mountain was either untouched or looked the way a managed burn should look with no crowning. We took the time to find the actual highpoint despite there being no benchmark. The summit area is quite flat and the highest point marked on the topo is not the highest when you're there. No sign of a cairn or anything to signify the high point either. Oh well.

The views off the rim are worth the price of admission. It's great up here.

On the descent it started snowing on us. I didn't believe it at first. It wasn't that cold. It had been 47 when we started and was 58 when we finished. I'd guess it was in the low 50s when the flurries hit. Probably the warmest I can recall for seeing falling snow. It was very light and only lasted a couple of minutes. Still cool.

Drove over to Aztec to see the falls and the summit. The tower is officially closed to visitors now with a nice fence and shiny new razor wire. Two day use sites were hosting large group campouts. If I had to guess, these are the people who will start the next fire.
