Comments
Comments: Absolutely beautiful day to hike with my wife and 18 year old son and 6 yr old golden retriever mix who had a blast. Despite elevation this route is one of the easier 4000 footers to ascend with only real challenge in the last 1/4 mile and even that was not too tough. Sunny wiht a lovely breeze especially a we approached wilderness zone. Number 42 of 48 4000 footers. Cannot believe I waited so long to do this hike.
