About this hike: Tied the old record! No small feat considering the amount of tourists and other "fair-weather" hikers up there today gettin in the way of we year-round diehards! Anyway, for a change I slept good and felt good today, and I had no pressing obligations so it made for an enjoyable hike despite the crowds. Enjoyable, stress-free, uneventful--just the way I like it.
