 Summer day on Princeton  

Hiked Princeton on Thursday, 6/10. Parked at 11,100 feet. The road is completely dry.

We accidently missed where the trail started as this part is covered in just enough snow to hide the first 10 feet or so of the trail.

After this the trail is pretty much dry the whole way. There were 2 main snow fields to cross that were probably 50 feet in length. Slipping here would not have been good. We were careful and watched every step in the snow.

We saw one other person the whole day.

Started at 6:30am and took 6 hours total hiking time with a no-rush pace. The weather was gorgeous the whole time. Hardly any wind except a little bit on the summit.
