Persuaded by the triplogs ,by trekkin_gecko and johnlp, decided to make the long drive instead of my usual Pass Mountain loop. This time of year could call this the lupine loop. Looks like they are fading some and with the warmer temps and no rain not likely to last much longer. With an early weekday start only 2 other hikers leaving the trailhead near the same time. Last year did this CCW so today did it CW, not much different but apparently the photos are not as good and trip was slower in this direction :D , skipped the gateway saddle today. Only saw about 10 other hikers all morning until getting back to the trailhead where at least that many were hanging out on the bridge by the trailhead [-( Most of the color noted on the windgate trail, making for frequent picture stops after leaving inspiration point , snack break at Windgates Pass. Nice hike today but don’t think I’ll to be back until next spring.
