Yet another hike up Black Canyon...

I parked the Roadrunner (my Subie) up at the upper trailhead. As long as you don't have a regular clearance car, getting to the upper trailhead should be no problem. I always check reports though...some years the road is a bit rougher than others.

A bit early for flowers. Still some snow out along the upper reaches of the road.

This trip I only hiked to the ridge and then back out. No loop trip given the lack of flowers and that snow was still lingering...
