I took a brief from the string of Baker area hikes recently and decided on a workkout quickie up Mt. Seymour first peak. 1 hour 5 minutes up, a short stop on top, and then back to the parking lot. 2-1/4 hours return.
Soil moisture was great, soil good and most all the way up to the base of the rocky ground that makes up the route to first peak.
All the trees and plants look happy, no sign of drought stress anywhere, everything looking green and lush.
Time Jones Memmorial looks grand as ever, so many beautiful flowers and items decorating the base of and around this memmorial.
Beginning of trail, skii run...
