The day was sunny and warm enough for rattlesnakes to be out, and apparently the first two hikers woke one up so it finally buzzed and coiled for the third hiker. The hillside was yellow with arrow-leaf balsam root and dyers woad. We reached the ridge at about 10:45 and everyone was ready for lunch. Since we had plenty of time one group went west to an overlook of Cache Valley where they enjoyed scenic views and pelicans flying overhead, one group went east up the ridge, others worked on cleaning up a campfire ring too near the trail, and Kathy took a nap.
On the way back Dave W and Jane took time to chop out burdock and other weeds.
