Bugs
Bugs: I haven't experienced bugs anywhere like I did at the summit of Zircon. It was 85 and hot with almost no wind, and standing still meant literally being covered.

Comments
Comments: The views at the top are great, but the bugs sort of ruined it. The hike overall is nice; the 2 mile walk up the gravel road is ho-hum, but the actual trail is pretty steep. Not very rocky, no real switchbacks, just up to the summit. A little tough on the knees on the way down.
