Comments
Comments: Very busy couple of days in the mountains. We stay the night at Nauman Tentsite which was almost to capacity. Trails were mixed dry, wet muddy. Lots of mud on the Webster Cliff Trail between the hut and Mt Jackson. Many of the bog bridges are deteriorated as well. Great views from all peaks this weekend as it felt like summer again. Very busy day on the trails, lots of people on the summit of Eisenhower walking off trail and on the fragile vegetation... Ledges were dry when exposed to the sun but in the trees they were very wet and slippery.
