Very quick but neat trip you did. When someone tells me they hate California, I always ask then where have they been in California. Big state with many different people , lands and climates. What got my attention when I was at Mt Evans this last summer was when I was coming back down and cross a woman jogging uphill at about the 12000 foot level. I saluted her from the bandit.
Thanks for sharing yur report.
