Comments
Comments: Started at Osceola Trailhead, hit both peaks, refilled water bottles at Greeley Pond, and went back. There were only a few people at Osceola peak by ~7:45, but on the way back it was packet at ~11:00. Getting back down to the trailhead was a huge pain trying to safely, socially distancedly(?) pass the constant conga line coming up; Felt like Homer having to blend into the foliage on the side of the trails every couple of minutes to let groups pass. The hike was great fun for the most part, but I would never do it on a summer weekend again.
