Woke up this morning, Sunday, April 4th and made the final decision to hike to the top of Sugarloaf Mountain. Happy Easter everyone! Yuma and I had a fairly quick breakfast and we were on our way by 11 o'clock. Going to be a puffy cloud day with warm temperatures and a nice breeze. Drove straight to the trailhead and when I read the poster, I was shocked to find out No Dogs Allowed.
There were only two other vehicles in the parking lot so I made an executive decision to put Yuma on a leash and we both headed out.
Right away, I could tell this was going to be a beautiful trail to hike. One mile up and one mile down. Not too bad! We are already quite high in the mountains when we start, so the canyons were steep right at the start.
Not going to do a lot of talking and just let the views do it for me. And they are spectacular to see!
We had just started when a family of four passed by heading back down and then a young man soon did too. He said there was no one else on the trail so we would have it all to ourselves😃
Once we reached the top I was pooped. Yuma had to pull me up the last 100 feet😂
Once we got to the top, we rested and then walked around the area taking pictures. Probably spent a good hour enjoying the serenity and solitude.
Few more pictures of the hike back down. Yuma was very interested in the view too!
I bet the Raven has a beautiful view!
As we were nearing the parking lot, we met up with a man heading for the top. I knew someone was coming because I saw the truck from above. His wife was waiting in the truck for him to return.
I know it's picture overload but everything was just too fantastic! I am so glad I made this hike. Probably the best I've ever taken other than the Grand Canyon.
