Comments
Comments: a true forget the lists kind of day..lets go treeline!!! changed plans on the way up 93 and the decision to go high was excellent. skook a great ascent with good footing most of the way. some mud on the reroute section. breezy and refreshingly cool once to the ridge..put on wind protection and enjoyed far reaching views today. presis cleared late. saw no one to summit of lafayette, from there the hordes began with many out enjoying the day. nice to run into some friends along the ridge. quick descent via falling waters..the falls were very fine today.. great day out. thanks Valerie and Andrea for parking lot change of plans..
