Ascent Trip Report

Snow on most of the trail, micro-spikes were helpful for this. Good, easy hiking up to the summit. Found some large animal bones on the trail on the way up. A little unnerving thinking something out there was eating something that big. No snow on the summit. Great 360* views with hardly cloudy skies, awesome. Lunch alone on the summit made for a great day. On the decent several parties were on their way to the top. We timed it just right. Laura found more of the animal that met it's end on this trail, mostly a large piece of vertebrae and another piece of vertebrae with part of the hip bone attached. After the hike we took in the Grant tree and dinner at the Wawona hotel.
