Peralta road is in the most pristine condition I’ve found it in a while , was able to do the speed limit bounce free all the way to the trailhead. Arrived early with 7 other vehicles in the lot with temp reading 59°. After taking a week off plus from hiking felt more out of sorts instead of energized. After crossing the dry creek for the last time the sun rose enough to warm up the steep section , still not too hot. Tons of thistle around but about half of it dried out, a few Saguaro blooms and no wildlife except lizards. Near the saddle ran into 2 hikers on their way down and at the saddle a few ladies spread out over the prime viewing rocks. To maintain distance I meandered toward the lone pine , by time I returned had the area to myself. Enjoyed the views some more then headed down , in a short ways ran into one of our own @RayHuston doing therapy for his knee by scampering up the final switchbacks , good to see you Ray :D Encountered about half dozen more hikers before returning to the lot. Felt a nice breeze on the way down the vegetation free trail, air quality did not seem as bad as predicted. On the drive out cruised slowly by Carney Springs TH about 0915 and counted 18 vehicles parked there !
