Comments
Comments: Beautiful air conditioning & bug free hike lol. Took mud brook trail up... beautiful wild flowers... painted trilliums, pink lady slipper, star flowers? - I think they were trientalis borealis? Nice view spot on an open ledge looking east before the summit. Once I broke tree line the wind was gusting and chilly, but the views were awesome with the dry cold air. Summit was busy... I found a spot behind a rocky ledge and hung out for awhile.... then I took the Caribou trail down.... many cascades including kees falls that were really beautiful to take pictures of. Great loop hike... always enjoy hiking this mountain. No snow anywhere.... did spit snow while at the summit.... ✌🏻
