Group of 4 rode Crystal yesterday (classic CCW loop) under clear blue skies and mild temps. Wildflowers were still popping in the meadows. The trail is a little dusty in a few places, but ground conditions are great and the trail is in awesome riding condition.
Taking in a few never-gets-old views of Rainier from the ridge climb, and stopping at Henskin give this ride a special character. Also, being a bit of a spectacle at the summit house is something else unique to Crystal. Being asked to pose for photos with international tourists ("look at these crazy Americans!") was a first, though!
Highly recommend scoring this one now if you've got the opportunity. Here are few pics:
