Wicked wind

Vernal Pools
Depressions in the rock eventually host vernal pools (foreground), that eventually turn into small pockets of vegetation (background).

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.
