Comments: The word of the day was HOT. Once out of the shade of Valley way which was delightful this morning we were in the hot sun all the way to Pierce. A bit of breeze here and there but dead calm on most of the summits We saw some seriously sunburned people..Great day for this traverse though on dry rocks pretty much the whole way out.

Lots of hut traffic. Suspect baked goods at Madison but Lakes had killer ginger cookies. Slow going on some of the rocky stretches around Adams and Jefferson but overall made good time. Never tire of the above treeline sections of the Crawford Path...nice to run into Dave, Bruce, and Petch along the way. Great day out with Valerie who really rocked the climbs today
