I haven't done this one in a few years, fire definitely influenced it. Today was nice and cloudy but there was some rain forecasted for 12 pm. Check out the Bighorn Fire board at the trailhead. It has some nice information to learn. This hike was steeper and longer than I remembered. After this hill I go downhill to the pools, right? Nope just up and down. With only about 3/10 of a mile left I could see some low lying clouds moving quickly by Romero Pass. Then there while looking downwards to have good footing I saw a bright flash. One, two, three, four, five, six, then thunder. Just over a mile away. I decided to head back. That was a bit too close for comfort. Decided to check out Montrose Pools instead. There were 5+ people there. I saw a single tadpole and a group of fish swimming. At the trailhead there was a showing of Tucson local reptiles. The diamondback rattlesnakes were very scared.
