Wicked wind

Looking back
Looking down the trail from near the top. The rock looks barren here, but that's not the case elsewhere.

It was a beautiful day overall, which means the trail to the summit was well travelled, so solitude was at a minimum. Though not bad at the base, the winds were howling up on top, so much so that I had to stuff my hat in my backpack despite the fact that it has a chin strap. Despite being crowded on top it was possible to find a quiet spot somewhere just off the peak.
