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.
