Comments
Comments: We did a hike to catch sunrise atop Boott Spur -- lovely. Early alpine flowers are patchy now, versus what we saw a bit over a week ago.

Very, very windy up top -- some of the higher gusts made staying on one's feet interesting on occasion on the ascent, with some of the bouldery/scrambly sections of Boott Spur Trail. Quite chilly, too.

Trails were pretty much bone dry with just a few wet spots in the regular, muddy sections on Boott Spur and Glen Boulder Trails below treeline.
