Comments: Super day for these summits. Trails are in great shape. I took some great advice and avoided the Jefferson snowfields. The only other snow on the trails are a few sections on Gulfside closer to Mt Adams and a couple of minor spots heading to Star Lake. These patches were for the most part avoidable. Airline trail was completely ice and snowfree. Micros went along just in case but not needed. It was nice to see the alpine flowers blossoming. I met 12 other hikers today-nice chatting with a few. Lunch at Star Lake.
