Ascent Trip Report

I'm not sure if we crossed the true summit of Mt. Franklin this morning or this afternoon.
In the morning it was a complete white-out and we missed a side trail that looks like it is higher than the summit marked on the Garmin topo map. On our wonderful afternoon return trip, we took the side path and ended up a bit higher than this mornings route. Gorgeous views along the ridge this afternoon.
