Great day for this loop. The peaks were socked in to start the day, and puffy clouds shaded the mountains all day, with sunshine maybe only 20% of the time. The divide sure grows back fast. It's not bad by any stretch, but growth is impressive. Big trail traffic away from the trailhead with three pairs of backpackers and a day hiker on Barnhardt. The Mazzies north of 87 didn't get much rain from storms this week so surface water was scarce.
