I have not been up on the Rim in over 6 months, so I decided to head up there today and hike up to Bear Canyon Lake from the See Canyon TH.

It was a great day to be up on the Rim -- temperatures were nice and there were some clouds in the sky so we weren't in full sun very much.

The See Canyon Trail was in good shape except for around a half dozen downed trees that we had to navigate around. Once on the Rim, we crossed the Rim Road and went offtrail to FR208, which we took to the lake. There were several people camping along FR208, and there were a few people at the lake, but it wasn't terribly crowded. There were a few patches of snow in some shady spots around the lake, but the snow probably won't last too much longer.

We hung out at the lake for a while and then reversed course back to the TH. On the way back we went up to See Spring.

The water level was fairly low in Christopher Creek, so it was no problem keeping your feet dry on the 2 creek crossings.

This was a nice hike to do on a warm spring day.
