Started this hike with Brian and Jim around 10:30 AM. The trail was very well maintained and quite pleasant. We saw some small patches of snow on the way up on the North side of the mountain. Within 10 feet of the trail junction heading up to Carr peak, I saw a 1 foot long small rattlesnake that appeared to be speckled. When I got my phone out to take a pic, it already moved under a fallen tree and disappeared. We didn't see it on the way down and we were a bit surprised to see a rattler at this high elevation. The Eastern side of the peak was just gravelly without any trees or bushes which allowed for some good pics of Sierra Vista down below. The Western side of the peak had some brush. We didn't see a registry up here and figured once didn't exist because of the popularity of this peak. After this peak, we continued on toward Granite peak which was roughly 2 miles to the West.

AEG for both Carr and Granite combined = 3,113 feet
