Trail Report: What a beautiful bluebird day it turned out to be. Started off at the parking lot below Artist Point and hiked the loop clockwise. Amazing views of Mt. Shuksan, Mt. Baker, Ptarmagin Ridge and Table Mountain. Quite a few marmots splayed out on boulders sunning. Views were surreal, the picture gallery below speaks for itself. This year's late spring means plenty of snow still on the trail but never felt the need to put on spikes.
Gear: Hiking poles and boots were all that was needed, most of the areas crossed with snow inclines had mellow runouts.
7.1 miles round trip, ~1,886 ft elevation gain.
