This was a particularly enjoyable hike. I love getting off the path when I travel and this hike did just that! A good 10 Hours and did not see but a handful of people. The change in weather is more then I would have expected. But, working at a outdoor retailer, I was fortunate enough to have my self prepared. Make sure if you do the hike that you take plenty of water, a hearty snack, and be mindful of the cairns (markers for the trail) can be difficult to find. There is little vegetation and the wind if wicked, but the views and the experience is just amazing!
