Would have preferred the hiking trail, but I just hoofed it up the service road at the last minute. Had the summit to myself. Enjoyed the views, especially of Meeker and Longs! Great wildflowers, particularly prickly pear and sunflower.
My nephew and I wandered up to the radio towers while my parents were hanging out at the gift shop after we all rode the tram up. Nice little jaunt to stretch the legs, sure beats shopping for bric-a-brac in a gift shop! I guess seeing as we were paid tram customers, we weren't even really trespassing?
"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."
