Brothers weekend get away. Met three of my brothers at the park and decided to warm up on this trail before going for Wheeler peak.

Started Friday about 5pm. Only saw about 6 people on the entire hike. This is a great short hike where you can see the Bristlecone Pines that are thousands of years old. Continuing onyou will reach the Glacier. Views were great on the whole trail, some snow still on the trail, but not to much. The trees are amazing and the glacier is very cool. if you hike to the end of the glacier hike, you will be at the base of Mount Wheeler. The end of the Wheeler Peak summit trail looks over a cliff down into this valley.
