Comments
Comments: This was a sort of 3rd choice hike. Given the weather and time, I took the quick hike... Nice to be back in this area. I had not been since my section hike in 2015. I was heart broken to find the cairn garden had been destroyed. Given that this was a landmark that many hikers enjoyed, it was really disheartening to see the rocks all over the trail. Also, given the snow and ice that will accumulate, this will present some hidden dangers if people are not careful. I am glad that I saw this area as it should be back in 2015 and have my pictures as memories.
