1st trip
A most enjoyable romp up to Fremont Saddle and the Weavers Needle overlook, followed by a return on the Cave Trail.

A friend from out of state along with a local friend of his asked if I would join them for a hike up to the Weavers overlook. On the way back from the overlook, I suggested a return on the Cave Trail. With all of the oohs and aahs from my hiking partners along the cave trail, I got a little giddy myself. I've done this hike enough that I'd forgotten how much fun I had the first time I did this loop.

The weather was perfect. The trails are in good shape, too. A trail maintenance crew was heading up Peralta to block some shortcuts below the saddle, with the majority of the crew doing work beyond the saddle.

The lot was filling up quickly by the time we started at 7:30. The overflow lot was in use when we left. We didn't see many people on the way up, but we noticed a lot of people heading up as we were returning along the cave trail.

A great day on the trails.
