Comments
Comments: Warm and humid it felt like summer! Headed up Avalon across Willey Range to Mt Tom and down AZ. I'd forgotten how steep the section is heading up to Avalon after AZ junction and how steep the descent is down the headwall on the AZ below Mt Tom but still fun all around - a loop that is well worth it! Trail was damp today with water and mud on all trails - not enough to deter but you will get muddy! Lots of damp rock heading down steep stretch of AZ from Tom - mostly not an issue but we did find a few slick rocks and had a few slips. Lots of people out on the trails heading to all peaks. We arrived after the fog had lifted and were treated to views from all peaks.
