Love this route. I’ve been working on a project for three weeks and now that its done I can hike. I went out to scout conditions and how the flowers are doing. Lupine begins to show up as soon as you leave the parking lot. Lots of flowers, and bugs around the little tarn in my photo. After this, I drove over to Paradise and hiked the Skyline trail in the morning to scout the flowers. Two more weeks to peak!
