The trail above the pass was very snow covered from early season storms, and I was breaking trail in 2'+ of snow for the last half mile. Exhausting, but my goodness the views!
Peak still mostly snow covered, had the summit to ourselves. Exquisite views - WOW!
Awesome. Bugs were bad for the first part of the hike. Weather obscured most views. Wildflowers were great.
