Smokey skies and dusty trail, but a beautiful hike through a burned out forest.  Amazing what a forest fire can leave behind.

we left the trailhead at 8:30 and summited 2 hours later around 10:30-10:40am, then back at the car at 12:00pm.

The hike was mostly through the burned trees, with some areas of wild flowers and small green bushes.  We topped out with a moonscape crossing towards the rocky summit.  Another cool sight.  We climbed the rocks to the true summit and then walk along the crater rim for a bit.  No views due to the smoke, but we did see the tips of a few mountains.

Great hike.
