My family had never been to Lemmon so took the drive down to enjoy the scenery and get in a little hiking.

I should probably have done this little Meadow/Lemmon Trail loop clockwise as that would appear to make for a more gradual ascent in the latter part of the hike. As it was, we went counter-clockwise (I had my Roger Clyne hat on so I couldn't help myself) and ended up burning out my kid's energy level before the somewhat steep ascent back to the car. I ended up carrying not only enough water and food for the family up the last stretch but part of the family as well-- my 4-year old decided enough was enough and so I had her on my front and my pack on my back.

Beautiful day and a great time overall-- I had not been to Lemmon in over a decade and had forgotten how beautiful it is.
