We had a great hike! My group of 8 were all strong hikers and we did the 12.5 miles (about half off-trail) in 8 1/2 hours. Elevation gain was about 2,800 feet. Plenty of stops for natural history interpretation, etc. Saw one small hoary marmot, no mountain goats (lots of tracks, though), huge number of flower species, many in the alpine tundra zone above timberline. Mosquitoes and biting flies were awful until we got above 7,000 ft. and into a breeze. Crossing Adams Creek was no problem, mainly because the night before had been cold on Adams Glacier.
