Joined Bruce and 9L for Doyle and Schultz Peak and I'm glad we did this one because the very next day it burned from an illegal campfire near Schultz Pass trailhead. However, pre-fire it was fun hike starting up the Weatherford Trail to Fremont Saddle where we took the first break. Heard some voices coming down from Doyle Peak and 9L knew them so we chatted for a few minutes.

After that we started the off trail portion of the hike up to Doyle Peak. It's steep but gets the job done and took a break on top with great views of Inner Basin and Humphreys. We also stopped by the cabin which curious if that survived before continuing on towards Schultz Peak. We found some tread on the ridge down to Schultz that was borderline trail at times. Even found a few patches of snow hanging on. Once on Schultz Peak we took another break. Views are not like Doyle but still a pleasant spot.

Break over we continued down the ridgeline finding tread in some spots. The ridge is really steep towards the bottom but some great forest on the lower slopes (maybe it's still there I can only hope). Made it back to the vehicle by I think 3pm. Great day just bummed what happened the next day :cry:
