About this hike: Today must've been national "Selfie Day" judging from the number of tourists stopping in the middle of the trails to whip out their phones. Regardless, I made it to the top in my usual 28 minutes.
From the summit it appears windy conditions yesterday have left our Valley largely clear of pollution.
By the time I reached the trailhead parking lot the gate was down, "Lot Full" sign up, and a park ranger was directing traffic.
