Comments
Comments: What an amazing hike. I'll be the first to admit that I might have over stepped something and I am glad that I did. Funny how if you just push through the weather on Lafayette sometimes, you get to some pretty decent blue sky views. All the trails are in good shape and the snow is firming up nicely. There was a fair amount of traffic up there today even with the questionable weather in the morning. Nice to add to my fifth round and build my confidence.
