Solitude on Mailbox Peak

I've probably hiked to the summit of Mailbox Peak a thousand times, I feel like my feet know every rock, gnarled root and patch of ice on its 2.6 mile 4,000 foot ascent.  Due to its steepness, it's a popular training hike for bigger mountains, so it's rare to have the summit to yourself.  Today it was just my dog, the mailbox, and me, which was a treat.
