Mike got up at 6:15 AM (after it was light enough to see without a flashlight), broke camp, had his coffee, cocoa and granola bar and was soon on the trail heading to yet higher elevations. The Minaret cascades looked to be pretty low, nothing like previous years. Every now and then there'd be some thin cloud cover making for nice lighting conditions.
