    It was an awesome day for this hike. Started out at around 8:30 am from Lightning Lake day parking with a brisk 3 C temperature and not a cloud in the sky. By the time I got to the larch meadows, 8 or 9 km into the hike in mid-morning, it was well into shorts and t-shirt temperatures. The larches were not yet in their full gold, but almost there, beautifully standing out against the dark rock background of the Frosty peaks. Made the summit in a little over 3 hours, 3 people already there, 2 more joined shortly after. Started back down around noon and ran into several more hikers on their way up. The return along the Windy Joe loop was equally spectacular and warm with far fewer people than on the Lightning Lake side.
