Rained all day with snow at higher elevations. Rain finally stopped by 3 pm or so when I started the hike. Very beautiful after the rain/snow.
Nice and easy leg stretcher for a lead off hike. A little sandsy (who would of thought?) Located at one of the first stops in the park...other than the occassional horse train, not too many people. Linked up with the trail to Emerald Pond/s.
Latest of several times I've hiked this loop. It is heavily used, eroded & dusty.
