9.1 miles of hiking • 1750' elevation gain •

Absolutely stunning day! The bear grass and avalanche lilies are completely amazing. The lilies are going to be done really soon though.No snow at all though except a few patches, none on trail. I took about a million pictures of curling bark as it sloughs off the burned trees. It was a friends belated birthday adventure so we had a fantastic picnic in Wyeast Basin and got back to town pretty late, it was one of those stop and gawk days.
