Got off work and up to paradise a little early to one my favorite general areas of the rim I’ve been long awaiting to visit again.
Eerily awesome on rim road as beaides the one Californian who obeyed proper dirt road edict that I passed I never saw another human until my intentional visitors later that night.

Perfect hiking conditions as it had just finished steadily sprinkling all day but my hike was calm, clear and perfect.
Soil was super saturated and I think I fell at least three or four times during the steep off trail traverses but that’s what makes it fun.

This was just one of many great canyon hikes of the weekend that were all somehow timed perfectly in between all the storms.

Still plenty of water to be found but no flow and the pools are lower than my visit in April.

Dry for the most part but the ever reliable perennial pool at the confluence with the main BC.
