Camped at the 7160' saddle at a pull out from the road. Ascended next morning with no one else around to a blaze of wildflowers and butterflies. Beautiful spring hike with a stunningly rugged view from the top.
"Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful people with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan "press on" has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race."
