Colden Sub-summit

The way down was uneventful and relatively quick, despite the bouldery nature of the down trail (we took the trail north and east down off of Colden). Lake Arnold had a million annoying black flies.

Back at Marcy Dam, Markus attempted to locate the rare lens cap of a hiker we encountered on the Phelps hike 2 weeks before. The bottom was too murky and easily clouded, though, so Markus gave up soon after diving in... he did enjoy the cool dip, though.

From here it was a quick dash back to the South Meadows trailhead...
