Comments
Comments: Parked in the Basin lot and started hiking by headlamp so that we could see the sunrise from Liberty.

The bushwhack was pretty easy to spot, even by headlamp and having never taken it before. It saved a lot of distance and was easy to follow. Highly recommended.

The trail was well-packed monorail pretty much the whole way with some easy-to-avoid postholes in spots. Light traction was sufficient the entire day.
