We climbed Mount Flume from Lincoln Woods via the Wilderness Trail and Osseo Trail. The trail was dry with no blowdowns. Weather was hot, climbing in the understory was stifling, especially when you looked up and the canopy was swaying in the breeze. The blackflies were still not that bad, but they're getting worse. The spring wildflowers are fading at lower elevations but strong between 3 and 4000 feet. The alpine flowers are getting ready to blossom. There was little breeze on the summit and skies overhead threatened rain, and we got a short shower on the descent. Jude's ankle was fine despite spraining it last week, not sore, just tired.
