Friend and I wanted to get a summit from Lockett Meadow done before the snow starts falling on the peaks and were hoping we weren't too early for the changing of the colors in the Inner Basin. Made it to the summit, but the aspens were a week or so away from being fully autumned out.

Started at 6am saw no one on the Inner Basin/Weatherford Trails. Humphrey's saddle up and down was pretty busy, maybe a few more than a dozen groups of hikers, who were the only people we passed besides those in the Inner Basin on the way back.

From the top it looks like the colors haven't really started to change around the peak, although Kendrick's eastern slopes were a mosaic of color. Forest fire to the southeast and its drifting smoke blocked much the of the view to the east/southeast, and the view got hazier in general as the day went on.
