Comments
Comments: Excellent hike of these peaks. Barebooted the entire day but still happy to carry spikes just in case as there are still many spotty sections of ice.Above treeline 99 percent bare ground. I did see 1 blooming alpine flower yesterday approaching Eisenhower and several that will be soon heading down Davis Path to Isolation. Spotty snowpack somewhat supportive sometimes not. Definitely pick and choose steps carefully.The stretches are just long enough to make you wonder and then alas bare ground again!Today was a treat of fantastic undercast until Wildcat it was pea soup.
