Comments
Comments: An incredible day to revisit a peak I had not been to in a while. Blue skies, no wind, lots of sun and no bugs made this a day to linger at various outlooks along the way. Crowds were nowhere near what I expected: there were people around but it didn't seem like that many. Once going toward the Sisters there were only a few people about. Thanks to KB for an enjoyable hike.
