Trail Canyon Trail has seen some recent volunteer attention, and it really is in good shape. Surprising to see few cars in the lot when we arrived at 9:30, but I'll take it. We had nice full packs for training and my companion was trying out some new boots, so we weren't exactly setting a blistering pace, but somehow managed to pass a few folks anyway. It was relaxing to hike along mostly in solitude on a trail that is usually pretty busy. Unfortunately, we had a big list of other things to accomplish today, so just ate lunch at Cave Spring and then turned around.

On the way back down, we saw a bright-eyed young "hiker," approximately 5 months old. Her parents looked a little nervous, but she was just smiling away and seemed to be really enjoying some time in the great outdoors. Start 'em young! :y:

We were too late for the leaves, but the wind did its best to convince us it was not summer anymore ;) The air was crisp and the wind was almost cold, providing nice clear views of the peaks.

The leaves have fallen. There was a slight autumn smell of rotting leaves in the air, though.
