Comments
Comments: Trip up to the hut for the night. Pleasant stay as always. Huts are fully open as on the first. 16 guests last night. Wet trip up and down. Went up Madison in the clouds and rain with moderate winds. Explored around Star Lake and the Great Gulf/back side of JQ Adams before heading down just in time for the steady rain to begin and persist. Totally amazed at the number of cold, wet people I saw coming and going Friday afternoon and fairly steady stream of underprepared/underdressed folks heading off on traverses on Sat morning.
