It had snowed the previous day so there was a fresh coating on the peak, trees, and trail.
Fresh snow in June.
I was singing Christmas carols to Thor by this point.

Big Obsidian Flow below Paulina Peak
On the descent I could see the snow was melting fast.
Stopped by Big Obsidian Flow for the short interpretive hike.
Obsidian on the trail (leave the pups in the car because it's like glass!)

Stopped by this small hotspring on East Lake. Smelled like sulphur and was shallow and murky, but a nice temp.
My favorite hiking buddy.
