Comments
Comments: Easy enough ascent today. Layered up just before popping out of the trees and good that I did. Down jacket, wool hat and mittens. Grateful to have them. That wind hit hard. The loop was tricky - both ascending and descending - b/c the wind was gusting and throwing me off balance. Gorgeous day to be out and up there though. Leap frogged with one other hiker on the ascent, had summit to myself, passed only a handful of uphill hikers as I headed down.

Alpine flowers beautiful today. Rhodura and diapensia blooming together. Trout lily lower down. Trillium still blooming a bit. Sarsaparilla. Poison Ivy. Lots and lots of Poison Ivy! Still a good day in the hills.
