There were 8 of us on this hike trying to escape the heat. Many of the flowers had bloomed then dried up. We were mostly in the shade (whew). There were still wonderful views to the east and a couple of extras not usually seen! They were (1) A sighting of a momma bear and two cubs crossing the Crest highway just below the Ellis trailhead (sorry, no photos), and (2) launching of two hang gliders (see video taken by Rob B and photos by Marilyn).
