We started our morning by hiking up into the clouds. We took a short break shortly before the saddle. I've never seen so many people past Linda Vista Saddle before! There were 16 including us! It didn't look like the groups were more than 2 people. I guess everyone wanted to see the snow. The majority of the snow was above the junction with the Pima Canyon trail. Typically, we try to do this as a loop hike, but we only have one car.

Flowers are starting to poke out as the day warmed up. I saw verbena, mallow, thistle, penstemon, asters, manzanita, and one lone prickly pear.
