Comments
Comments: Horribly busy and very few folks who would get off the trail for us. Pandemic or not, trail etiquette was horrendous. People stopped right on the narrow trail to use their cell phones, people lunched right in everyone's view of Washington with no concern for others, people on the summit practically yelled to each other so no one could enjoy any peace after summiting, people (large groups) refused to get to one side of the narrow trail (when it was possible) and instead took up both sides of the trail so you had to walk through them and their potential COVID breath. Trail is amazingly beautiful. While somewhat challenging, the worst part was all of the people/the overcrowding. Have never felt so claustrophobic and overwhelmed on a hike until yesterday.
