Sunday morning dawned with low hanging clouds and full blown monsoon saturation. :D I wanted to do this hike, but was unsure about how early thunderstorms would become a problem. Went down and said goodbye to Cindy and Bobby, who were leaving (I would be on the trail when they drove out). That's when I decided to go for it, thinking the storms from the previous night would inhibit rapid development (I know...wishful thinking on a Sky Island :lol: ). Roll the dice.

Turns out the heavy cloud cover worked to my advantage by keeping me cool on the way up. :) By the time I reached the peak I could hear thunder to the west over towards the Parker Canyon Lake area. Radar loop showed storm motion toward the west, so I was fine. But new stuff was beginning to blossom to the northeast, so I didn't stay on top long. The trip down was uneventful and actually downright fantastic, as I got to watch the storms growing and consolidating in the distance. :D Heard a little more thunder to the northeast (not close) and enjoyed a few raindrops along the way.

Carr Peak was kind to me today. Thank you old friend.
