Comments
Comments: always a good hike to get back to summits after alternative summer activities, and a check on trail conditioning.
cloud cap on summit ridge cleared late morning to allow 360 views. everything dry except for rare puddles. late foliage lower, but the trail is not now covered with leaves.
