Outside of a few blisters on my paws, it was a beautiful hike. We didn't see a single soul on the Waldron Trail, and it certainly looked as if few people took that trail. That was exactly what I was looking for! Here are a few pics from the day's adventure.

The Waldron Trail essentially comes down from the rim at the center of the picture and descends into the Hermit Basin.
