Decided to do an evening hike. Nobody else on the mountain or doing Decalibron. Started at 5pm in light rain. I went probably .25 miles up the trail, past where you're supposed to make the left across the creek. It's what I do. Snow started around 13,000'. A couple squalls along with whatever happened earlier in the day left 2 inches from here to summit. Slippery going on the boulders/screw/talus on the traverse. Not sure what the best route is once you cross the power lines. Skies cleared at sunset. A couple campers at the TH at 9pm when I got back. Otherwise had the entire kite lake basin to myself. Not bad

Is gorgeous! I can't seem to wrap my head around sunset hikes after so many years of "done by noon" mentality but I really ought to try. Thanks!
