With the western Supes opening up for the first time in a while, and with the temperatures dropping a bit, I figured that this would be a good time to go up to Peak 5057 from the Hieroglyphic Trailhead.

We started right at 6:00 AM and we were the first people on the trail.

It was dry as a bone in Hieroglyphic Canyon, which wasn't a surprise. We followed the "standard" route up to the ridgeline.

There was no evidence of a fire until we got up the ridgeline, and we could see some burned areas north of the ridgeline. For the most part we did not see much fire damage up on the ridgeline until we got almost to the north of Peak 5057. There were some burned areas south of the trail going toward 5057, and quite a bit of burn off to the north. You could smell a lot of soot, but it was hard for me to tell how intense the fire was in that area. It didn't look all THAT severe, but time will tell how fast the area will bounce back.

I always enjoy this hike, and today was no exception. When we got back to the rock art at the end of the Hieroglyphic Trail, I was surprised at how few people were there. I guess that they are all up in Flagstaff for the weekend.
