I had an itch that needed to be scratched. The calendar hasn't been on my side for this one, but the cooler weather this weekend allowed for reasonable conditions early in the day. The whole climb is shaded for the first couple of hours after sunrise and the temps once on the top section were pleasant, with a cool breeze.

On the return trip, the drainage was shaded until I hit the 2800 foot contour at about 8:30. The last hour or so was in the sun which got increasingly warm. Still, it was only 77 when I reached the truck. Not terrible, but I'm glad I started when I did. Mid May mornings in the upper 50s are to be enjoyed!
