    This was a very fun trip. Had a little trouble following the trail after the stone house but had excellent views and we had the whole trail to ourselves. Unfortunately, a late start on the summit day forced us to turn back as the weather turned and a thunderstorm with some hail rolled in. Definitely want to try this route again.
