Comments
Comments: One of the best sunrises I've seen (ever) from the view point on South Hancock this morning. Just spectacular.

I encountered maybe 10+ people on my return trip, all before 8:30 a.m.

For whatever reason the erosion on the Hancock Loop Trail was very apparent, especially on the steep portions. The erosion trench is beginning to look like the Kinsman Ridge Trail on Cannon in places.
