Telescope Peak

My son and I hiked Telescope Peak on 6/13, his longest day hike ever. Conditions were perfect, views were awesome! We had highs in the 60's but for the most part with the wind it was on the chilly side. Lows at Mahogany Flat were in the 40s. There are a couple of very minor snow patches on the trail that were easily crossed or bypassed and they won't last long. The road to Mahogany Flat is in great shape and fine for most cars, if not all.
