Descent of Mt. Massive

I have a few more photos to share, from my hike down.

By the time I was heading down, about 2:30 PM, the temps had dropped pretty quickly.

My backpack with remnants of snow
The little streams which were running freely on my way up, were now freezing over.

There was quite a variety of wildflowers on the mountain, and I thought this one was particularly interesting because I had never seen it before, so I looked it up - Arctic Gentian. I saw many more but needed to focus more on hiking down rather than taking photos.

This parting shot was a really nice end to my day on the mountain.
