It appears that the Beargrass and other wildflowers, blooming on the south open slope, will be out later this year and the only flowers currently blooming were down lower just near the trees below 4000'.
Going down we passed many unprepared hikers going up with tennis-shoes but boots and gaters recommended, especially in the slushy afternoon snow.
Ralph brought his 11 year old daughter Katie along with us and she did extremely well for her first mountain summit.
