We found an awesome spot to view the meteor showers on a little side trail that juts to the north, a bit below the ‘Change Creek Vista’ sign. It requires just a bit of rocky scrambling but once you get there it is a nice, safe, wide spot with a terrific view:
As usual on this trail, the views (and the workout) are excellent:
It was great to get out with Derek again, he had a rare confluence of multiple schedules that allowed him to do a really fun hike. The discovery of this potential meteor shower viewing spot was a highlight.
We wound up not going quite as far as we had planned because, once we started going down the J’s Landing connector trail, we started post-holing, sometimes up to the waist, and that is mighty tough going. So we just headed back down.
