Carrie Nation Trail - Madera Canyon Date Climbed: Nov 18, 2012
Beautiful fall day for this hike. The lower reaches of the trail were lovely, with lingering fall colors. We enjoyed the lizards that inhabit the SE facing walls on the upper part of the route - they were everywhere! The observatory structures are amazing, and the views from the top absolutely stunning. What a great day. Scott, thanks for the dynamite route map!
