Forecast was for mostly sunny and 60s down low and upper 50s at my destination for this dayhike, done last Wednesday.

the meadows were soaking wet from condensation, so for the XC for HS Mdw, I followed natures trail - dried creek beds, since that is the route anyway. There were footprints.

And finally, the fantastic sunny forecast view from The Bumper - the best it got all day
The only sun I got all day was when I got back to the trailhead at the end. I never saw the mountain all day.
