Top 3!

One of my top three favorite hikes in my life - there's really nothing else like it. Keep in mind that June through September is generally regarded as the best time of year to go due to warmer waters and longer days, but that monsoon season is mid-July to mid-September, meaning these are the most dangerous months for flash floods due to thunderstorms. Whenever you choose to go, be sure to pay close attention to weather in the region before you head out on this amazing adventure!

Scariest hike I've ever done in my life, but hey, falling is one of my greatest fears. Very much worth the trembling in my bones to get to the top and see that stellar view, though!

The cream of the crop. If you can get this permit, you're in heaven. Sure, it's possible to thru hike this in a day, but I'm all in favor of taking your time and really savoring this other-wordly landscape.
