Frosty Larch update 2019-09-21
We went with low expectations, cloudy weather forecast and still September, but it turned out pretty nice. The weather held out for the day. Larches are just starting to turn yellow.
Parking was almost full at Lightning Day use area, we were lucky to get a spot. It seems there was some race going on. On the way up, every 3 or 5 minutes a runner would come down the trail. Most of them were pretty friendly. Frosty camp was full of tents, it seemed like 15 or 20. There was a slight trickle of water in the creek.
Had a nice lazy lunch in the meadow, had a nice catnap in the sun.
On the way down it was the opposite, we only ran into 1 or 2 people, including a strangely deserted Frosty camp with all the tents set up still.
Lots of good fall color and worth going!
