Hiked on the first day of my RMNP trip. Only saw about a dozen people on the trail. Afternoon storms thundered on the other side of a mountain range and the temperature was nice because of storm clouds shade. Thanks to a fellow hiker for showing me the upper tier, otherwise I wouldn't have gone up there.
average hiking speed 2.13 mph
