Route: Mt. Roberts Trail

On the eve of a Bonds traverse, I opted to do a mild, local hike and enjoy the nice weather.

The Mt. Roberts Trail was mostly dry and generally snow-free, which the exception of a few small patches of snow and mud above the ledges. There were also some Trailing Arbutus wildflowers along the lower elevations of the trail.

Reaching the summit, Mt. Washington was particularly stunning, as the partially snow-covered cone stood out in the horizon.

Back on the ledges, I took a brief break whilst looking at the excellent lake views.
