    Started at 6:45 am at the 4wd trailhead and followed a beautiful recently repaired/constructed trail through aspen forest to the music of chirping birds. Crossed one short (100 ft) snow field at 12,000 ft just below tree line and a much longer one (1000 ft) from 13,600 to 13,800 ft.Took 4 hours to climb, arrived to meet 100 others who were equally joyful to have reached the summit.
