Route: Edmands Path, Eisenhower Loop, (Mt. Eisenhower), Eisenhower Loop, Edmands Path

Trails were generally dry, though there was some slippery rock around the middle half. Such a shame to see a legendary trail erode away. Beautiful night weatherwise with warm temperatures but a nice breeze above treeline. Nice sunset.
