Comments: Foggy and overcast in the morning and the sun came out after noon. Temps from 45 to 65. Saw a lot of people today with many having full packs and headed to Guyot Campsite tonight. Various conditions listed above, mostly wet from yesterday's rain and many patches of snow in the trees above 3500 feet. A great day to get these 4 peaks.
