||Absolute beautiful day. Ranger told us we might have had the best weather day of the season. Cold to start warmed right up light breeze perfect. Chimney Pond is worth the trip even if not going to the top. Saddle Trail|
fairly easy until Slide. Steep climb but this might be my favorite way up to Baxter. Knife Edge didn't disappoint. Fantastic views all day. Climb down the chimney from the Baxter side is a challenge to say the least. Views going this way were in my opinion better the from Pamola. Thanks to Chuck & Karen for a great time!
