We passed by the branch of the trail that led to the Fruita Overlook deciding to continue on toward the Frying Pan. We weren’t planning on going all the way but were enjoying the trail so much we figured we’d keep going. We knew it was downhill all the way to the car so it would be faster going out. This was a feature we looked forward to today after the grueling pull out of Horseshoe Canyon the day before. The grade in front of us blocked our view of the incoming sky so we were a bit surprised when dark clouds came into view. This convinced us to turn around and head back.
