    Nice hike. It's been a few years since I've done this popular hike. Dec.2 @ 8:00am start with the parking lot half full. I took the old Mason Lake trail up to avoid the Ira Springs trail and the groups ahead of me. About 1/2 up to the lake the snow started. One has to be careful crossing the creek and traveling on the boulders with the light snow covering. Once I hit the main trail again it was well packed down. About 6 people headed up to Defiance before me so the trail was okay and I didn't wear gaitors or micro-spikes. The top was in the clouds so no views. I took the Ira Springs trail down from Mason Lake. On my way down I met a number of people heading up and the parking lot was full when I go back. ★ ★ ★ ★ ★
