Comments: epic hike. clear blue sky on the ridge. beautiful views. not a lot of people. trails were surprisingly dry. no bugs. perfect temp. feel very lucky to have been up there on such a perfect day. haven't been on the ridge for a few decades, was happy that the ridge trail is now very well marked and people seem to be staying on the walkway and off the plants. many thanks to all who are working hard to keep this very popular trail in such good shape.
