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!
Long on my to-do list, took advantage of first barely-cool weekend in months to hike this peak. Views from up top are beautiful. Have a dollar for a cold coke.
