Comments
Comments: Peak was in the clouds, so no visibility not that Hale has a view anyway. Trail was in really good shape overall. No blowdown to navigate, no snow left, no ice. Occasional wet spots in the trail, but nothing of concern. Worst part was some slippery mud near the summit, but this wasn't deep nor a problem other than watching your step.
