The weekend snow that Koy mentioned yesterday was hanging around in places on my way up at 7:00, but was mostly gone by the time I made my way down at 10:00. There is a consolidated snowfield at the very base of the slope, but it's no trouble to walk over.

This was the third straight hike that low-hanging clouds chased me up a valley; it's starting to feel personal. Visibility was 20-30 feet by the time I made the summit; I waited an hour for it to clear, and when it didn't, I gave up on Loveland and headed back down.

Plenty of people at Kite Lake, some doing the Decalibron.
