The weather was perfect at Sunrise making the visibility absolutely unreal! The hike to Fremont Lookout is a well maintained and scenic trail. Workers were restoring the Lookout building from the bottom up. Grand Park was showing its beauty and there were flowers along the trail to enjoy. It was an excellent easy hike. Sigree
