We started the hike at sunrise.  It was a little brisque, a little windy and overcast.  But the weather was absolutely beautiful.  As we started the hike we noticed all the beautiful yellow flowers in bloom and even the ocotillo were blooming.  It got a little windier as we got closer to the top but it was still amazing.  We took a few photos during the hike and of course at the top.  After a few minutes to catch our breath we started the descend.  It was a little slow going as we now had to maneuver down instead of hiking upwards, so a lot of careful foot placement so that we didn't slip.  The trail was getting busier as we got further down.  Going early was a good idea.  We finished and went to refuel our bodies with an amazing breakfast at Olive and Ivy.
