Was disappointed at the amount of trash and graffiti along the trail. Beer cans, beer bottles, broken glass, a corona box, dirty socks, empty shooters. Pretty gross that stuff was just left up there. People tagging rocks with names and dates....

Decent views of clear creek canyon and golden. Very smoggy and hazy today. Only saw one other person at the top not too many people on the trail. Limited shade and fierce sun until the clouds rolled in.
