This is one of my favorite hikes in the Valley, and it had been almost a year since I last did this one, so I decided to give it a shot today.

It rained a bit as I driving through Gold Canyon, and I could see some lightning in the distance, so I was wondering if we'd be able to do the hike. We got to the TH at 5:30 and there were dark clouds to the east and north. I checked radar and it looked like the storm would move off to the north, which is what it did. We waited a bit just to be sure about the weather, and got started a little after 6:00. While we were waiting a nice double rainbow appeared just to the west of us.

This wound up being a great hike. We took an efficient route up, and the weather turned out great -- cloudy, decent temperatures, and a nice breeze. We hung out at the summit for about 40 minutes, and then headed back down.

As we descended, about a mile from the TH we met a hiker coming up the trail. He was the only person that we saw on the hike.

The vegetation up at the summit was very green, so it looks like there has been some monsoon precipitation in the area.
