Ascent Trip ReportSpectacularly beautiful day temperature wise although the sun kept hiding. Very little rain temps in the 40's. Left Loj parking lot at 7:22am and arrived at summit about 12:30pm. Passed 1 guy who was headed down without snowshoes, he was exhausted from "post holing." There were 8 other hikers coming down above tree line and then 2 more showed up who came up from the Garden parking lot. They said the trail was not very well maintained with many downed limbs. Windy but relatively warm on top. We had to wait for the wind to move the clouds to get any kind of a view. It was a beautiful day in the neighborhood!
