Comments: Started off in fog, but the weather cleared and it was a really great day to hike. T-shirt temps, interesting clouds, moderate wind. Some patchy snow, but no traction needed. We walked across the large snowfield on Jefferson with no problem. Beautiful flowers in bloom. Mitzpah Hut is open (thank you for feeding us!) The building on Washington said it was closed, but the door was open so we used the bathrooms. Got caught in a thunderstorm on Jackson. Thanks Tim and Galen for "some kind of wonderful" day.
