Route: Canty Trail

For the second hike of the day, we headed up the Canty Trail. After passing through an abandoned camp, we eventually made our way to the actual climb. Warm and buggy, we stopped off at a cascade partway up.

After reaching the summit, we continued to the viewpoint, which provided some views toward Rutland, but was generally a bit grown in.
