Comments: Beautiful hike of these peaks with mild temps and decreasing winds. With only spotty sections of remaining snow drifts I was able to bareboot the entire hike. I did encounter a small section of knee deep drifts heading up Mt Monroe as well as on the backside of the summit of Mt Clay.It was nice chatting with the hiker on Mt Jefferson,overall met only 7 hikers today
