Comments
Comments: The trails are mostly dry save for a couple spots of minor mud and a couple of areas of water run-off. A few sparse sprinkles early on didn't even get anything wet. Higher filter clouds with some lower valley clouds in the morning made for some great views. Only one other person on Liberty in the morning and maybe a dozen or so in the afternoon with about six on Flume. I actually had both summits to myself for a bit...on a Sunday morning...in mid July...with nice weather. Truly awesome!
