    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.

Lightning storm moved into the area earlier than expected! We decided to turn around right before the scree slopes which were too exposed. Huddled in the trees while it started to rain. Ran down the trail between bolts! Hail! Pouring rain! Such loud thunder! What an adventure! Oh and the beargrass was spectacular and we heard group whomping.
