17.7 miles of hiking • 3750' elevation gain • 3 nights
Drove in Thu night after work; did a variation of classic loop, about 1/2 off-trail but never far from it. Finally nice temps, low 60's during the day, low 40's at night (almost cold!) with some clouds - it really felt great for a change. Still plenty of water/streams but flowers only left in a few places.
