Comments: Really awesome day to hike. It had snowed the night prior, so about 2 miles up the trail I started to see newly fallen snow. I began hiking at 8:30 am, and I was seeing packed snow and ice by 9:30 am. I'd packed microspikes, which were enough to handle any traction issues. The sun was so warm that by the time I reached thinning trees, I was able to take off a few layers and stay warm. After passing the lake of the clouds hut, there was significant snow at the summit. Wind was minimal, even near the summit. By the time I was descending, around 2:30 pm, significant amounts of snow had melted. As such, the lower parts of the trail were quite wet. In summary, conditions were still mixed. I would expect wet and possibly snowy conditions in the near future, however the hike was a total joy in fair weather.
