I had a good time on this hike. There were some nice wildflowers in the meadows, and great views of RMNP from the summit area.
Total ascents = 12. This is a very large and complicated mountain that offers many good montane zone hikes, on and off trail.
Hiked to the summit multiple times since 1988. This trip proved to be quite exciting as it alternated between snow squalls and nice weather punuated with blue skies followed by more wind and snow. Saw some elk further down.
