Still good. David K, Fred R and I went up from 4th Crossing Trail. Had to park up in main lot amd walk down the road due to lower road closure for helicopter operations to service Camp Muir and other high camps. I'm not sure if those were completed - it was pretty socked in all morning.  Met Silas W, whose car was strategically parked right next to the barricade for shortest possible walk. He waited for others and they passed us as while we ate lunch up at ~6400'.  Carries getting longer. We booted to Van Trump Memorial, then skinned continuously.  Runneled and cupped down low on the flats. We stopped at the crack at 8,050 ft, but it is passable. A little bumpy up high but soft enough for nice skiing today. Wildflowers in full glory at Paradise. It was a great day to not be at work.

Very nice day!  Thanks for Don and Fred for route finding in the fog on the lower glacier.  That was a very long crack at 8000 feet.  A few pictures at http://www.flickr.com/photos/koelle/ will be up a little later.

Saw a couple F15s fly by, maybe to salute friends climbing the summit?
