Summer Cactus to Clouds Hike
There was a cool spell (low of 72F), and I was very fit from Whitney, so I did my first summer Cactus to Clouds hike. I left at 1am and was at Rescue 2 by sunrise. The last two miles to Long Valley kicked my butt of course. Leaving early was great because I got to Long Valley before the crowds came up the tram, and I had much of the upper hike to myself. That never happened before and was a very nice, very different experience than the normal Cactus to Crowds. Had a cold beer at the tram station before heading back down, highly recommend adding that to your hike agenda.
