It did clear and I made the long trek to the summit of the tallest peak in the US Rocky Mountains, high point of Colorado, and second highest peak in the lower 48 states. Met a couple on top that just got engaged! Nice views but then the thunder storms came back and I headed down. The whole trail today was filled with marmots, especially at the summit. We also saw tons of them on the road to Twin Lakes as well as seeing a coyote and some deer.
The rain got heavy as I hiked over toward Mt Massive so I am camping about a mile short of the trail that leads to the summit. Hoping for good weather for my side hike attempt on Mt Massive, second highest peak in CO, in the morning.
