My first +10K' hike of the season, and kinda kicked my butt. Thought this would be a good one for the dogs, as it's somewhat "off the beaten path" of the ordinary Inner Basin hike most choose. There was an abundance of elk sign between 9-10K, so if your dogs are animal chasers, might be best to keep them leashed. Was also intrigued by previous trip logs describing bountiful water issuing forth from Snowslide Spring at this time of year. But, alas, the water was barely flowing . . . and not much snow to boot. Makes me think about the possibility of forest closures due to the enhanced fire danger from a historically dry fall/winter/spring.

A good workout hike, views are mostly rocks and trees, but a few decent glimpses of the surrounding landscape, especially on the way down.

Still early, mostly of the tiny ground hugging variety in yellow and white. Aspens are leafing out at lower elevations, but bare above 10K.
