Comments
Comments: Fantastic bluebird day. Lower trails to the hut are in great shape. As is the trail up to Lafayette. There are a few sections that are blown in but there was plenty of traffic today to maybe tramp it out. The ridge is also in fine shape. Really enjoyed the day today and just savored the time outside. Falling waters was mashed potatoes on the way down and the water crossings are starting to open.
