Crisp, sunny morning. We drove through several burned areas. The way to the peak was untouched by fire. However, the trail is considerably narrower in spots than when we did this one last year. The yuccas are getting big. We could see the new snowfall on Baldy and Baden-Powell. It was a good aerobic workout. Just remember to take the trail left when you get to the first major saddle. And then stay on the trail to the right and not go up to the ridge and the false peak. Plenty of parking this time. Last year we had to park on the road. Someone also trimmed the vegetation around the "Heaton Flat" sign so we had no trouble finding the trailhead.
