Looking for a day in the cold as the temperature climbs into the 90s in Phoenix, settled on this one. Started from a campsite on the edge of The Rim near the Houston Bros TH and went clockwise.

Rim classic that took me a while to get to. Coming back I'd do the same deal only in reverse. Houston Bros through the nice forest up on the ridges and down in the canyons and draws. Little snow, no mud. Wind in the trees, high 30s. Some deadfall, nothing bad. Watershed exclosures make the canyon feel not so far away. Aspen Spring area probably my favorite bit along the way.

Pinchot Cabin in that heavenly corner of The Rim. Fred Haught is washed out, signage urges hikers to use U - Bar and Houston for looping the time being. U - Bar my favorite trail of the day. Out of the predominant fir and into the open pine. Diverse scenery along the way, ridgetop forests, Dane + Barbershop Canyons.

Barbershop back round. Interesting trail that stitches together a track between the many roads. More diverse forest and great weather. Barbershop Canyon back up. Use trail pretty much the whole way, not that it's needed. That portion was basically a long, long meadow with water trickling down. Really scenic way to end the day. Up to a road and through the forest back to 300. Didn't see anyone, even cars on the hike. Temps high 30s-60s.
