Comments: Great day for a hike. Be sure to bring sunscreen - got a nice burn on my arms from being above treeline so long. Still good patches of solid ice along the trail ... some of it avoidable, some of it not. Microspikes can be helpful, but it's a pain to have to keep switching between the spikes and bare boots as the terrain changes every 10-20 minutes once you reach the alpine zone.
