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

Despite the 70 degree weather in the valley, it looked like a cool, brisk day above treeline. As has been the case for me, the Edmands Path seemed to drag on - I'm not a particular fan of the dark and wet middle portion of it.

The views from the summit were rather good - things were enhanced by purple and white alpine flowers. As forecasted, there were some cool winds blowing - had I lingered for awhile, it would have been time for a jacket.
