Comments
Comments: Melting is almost complete - only a few patches of ice and snow in deeply shady portions of trail. Exposed rock above treeline pretty easy to navigate - no ice up there, just some wet. No traction needed and despite wetness, feet stayed dry in regular, old hiking boots. Great day for a hike; bright-cloudy and good visibility from summit. Pupster loved it too.
