Ascent Trip Report

I hiked Lindsey with Allen. We camped out below the trailhead the night before. We started hiking around 5:30, reached the summit before 10AM, and arrived back at Lily Lake Trailhead just before 1PM. There was a fire burning in New Mexico or to the west of us. The views from the top were very hazy, and we could smell the smoke. Other than that, it was a fine day, sunny and breezy.
