Started very early to avoid the heat but failed! All layers came off within the first 15 mins of the uphill climb. After the rough first couple of miles it wasn’t so bad and there was shade along the way. Around mile 5 the flies started and were relentless. Luckily they weren’t too bad at the top and stopped again at that same point for really only a couple of miles of pesky flies.
There was one car at the trailhead when I started and I passed them on the way up. I did not see any other people going up or coming down.
The ranger at the top is really nice!
Overall a great hike despite the heat. It hit over 95 on the way down and was 100 at the car 🥵
