What a beautiful hike. Bring a lot of layers. We were sweating in some parts with just long sleeves and hiking pants on, other parts had on 4 layers with winter coat, gloves, and hat. Sunscreen is a must - many exposed areas. There was a lot of (packed) snow but nothing our regular hiking boots couldn't handle. But wow - definitely one of the top hikes in my lifetime. Worth the time. It took us 6.5 hours total, completed October 18 for reference.
