Comments
Comments: A stellar hike today across the ridge - sun sun sun and nice warm temps along with a bit of wind early on; up Greenleaf through eagle pass, stayed at the hut Sunday to beat the dayhiking crowd and had the trail largely to ourselves until Lincoln and then the usual crowds; met only a few between little haystack and liberty. Greenleaf beyond eagle pass has a number of stretches of running water on the trail leading to a few slick rocks but is a great and easy alternative to bridal path. Rest of the trails in perfect shape until down low on Liberty where the usual mud is evident.
