I left from the Circle Park trailhead and headed up the east ridge. Roundtrip took 9 hours. I would have done this as an overnight, but the weather report predicted thundershowers for the next few days. I left before sunrise and was rewarded with clear weather. As I lay on the couch at home resting a couple hours after my return, I watched a wall of water and lightening sweep over the mountains. A very satisfying day.
