Fun hike.

Extremely! I've done it about a half dozen times now, and it's still fun.

The only problem is that the views and the famed 1-mile long scramble atop the summit ridge means that one is combing people out of ones hair all hike long. I've usually avoided this in the past by coming really early or avoiding weekends. Unfortunately, I couldn't do so this time, which made photography extremely challenging! e.g. Photo #6 took me a half hour to take! As you can see, it's a 'selfie'. I picked out this spot, mainly because the steep slope had scared most people away, but just as I had set everything up a family sauntered onto the slope. I didn't want to ask them to move, so I had to wait patiently until they finished their snacks, took their own pictures, and then exited stage right. huh.gif
