This was a fun hike. These trails are built perfectly and in great condition. Cool, shaded and wet up until the off-trail to Josephine. Ridge walking is always enjoyable. This one gets a little scratchy. I survived in shorts, but the more comfort minded hiker will want pants. Plenty of green vegetation and loose soil from recent rains. Even a waterfall down below that could be heard almost from the summit. Well worth the extra effort. We enjoyed a nutrition break and stirred the swarm of ladybugs before heading back to the trail. Spotty cloud coverage kept us comfortable all day. Lots of flowers out right now and every spring was flowing. We made it to the Wrightson summit and had just as much solitude as on Josephine. Great views all around. By the time we got back down to the saddle, we'd seen more deer than people. Cruised on down Old Baldy and back to the TH. Perfect day for this one and the weather cooperated all afternoon.
