A little windy and cold this morning when I got my start just after 8AM. But the cooler weather kept the bugs away and made the hike up a little easier as there is no shade on this hike. Had the top of third Burroughs to myself for a few minutes, just me, a marmot and a pika. Didn't get the bluebird conditions I had hoped for but the Mountain was out. Took the Sunrise Rim trail on the way back to get some different scenery and plus it usually has fewer people (notice I didn't say "few people"). I think this the first time I haven't seen any goats at Burroughs. Wildflowers are just about gone -- not too many left at this stage after the hot, dry summer. All in all, another great day in the park.
