Ascent Trip ReportIt was pretty cold overnight in Flagstaff (in the 30s), but not too bad for hiking. The aspens were at their peak colors, which made the first section of the hike quite colorful. Started at the trailhead at 7:40 AM, got to the summit just before 11:30 AM. The forest provided some shelter from the wind. Once I got to the ridge, the icy wind really picked up. The summit was somewhat sheltered from the wind, on the east side of the peak. It was pretty busy at the top, due to it being a weekend and the fall colors were out.
State high point #3!
