Beautiful hike. Some snow,
Ice and mud. The view at the top is amazing. It was a super cold day. 28 when we started. Super
Windy at the summit but so worth it.

Great hike. Wonderful views from the top. Left at 9:00am on a Saturday. We didn't see a sole until the split and then only a couple until we reached the top. Saw lots on the way down. Parking was also full at that time 1:00. (We're really out of shape ☺) It was a great workout for us!
