Remarkably uncrowded on the trail for a beautiful August day. The roads, however, were full of quad runners and rented jeeps. Saw one family on Cinnamon Pass with a 2wd Highlander. Just goes to show you what a little skill can accomplish.
Beautiful day for a summer hike. Lots of other people on the trail, including a group of 20+, one of which was finishing up his 14ers. A top the summit they broke out the champaign to celebrate. Started to sleet and snow just before I got back to the trailhead.
"After the first glass, you see things as you wish they were. After the second, you see things as they are not. Finally, you see things as they really are, which is the most horrible thing in the world."
