Comments
Comments: Trails were generally dry with some minor mud and a little bit of running water.

Still some alpine flowers in bloom, including diapensia and lapland rosebay.

Sad to see the continued unmitigated erosion on this trail, folks leaving "rock art" on top of alpine vegetation (I removed it to save the vegetation), as well as the COVID mask litter near treeline.
