Route: Red Hill Trail

With not much time, I opted to take a quick jog up Red Hill. The trail was a bit dusty and rocky due to an extended period of minimal rain.

Reaching the summit, there were strong views in all directions - a welcome change from the hazy, smokey views in recent hikes.

Nonetheless, the deer flies did their best on the descent to make things a bit vexing.
