Started backpacking Sunday afternoon to Moraine Lake to camp for two nights.  Beautiful day very little wind until later that afternoon.  I found a great campsite (#20) on the north side of the lake.  The next morning I started up the trail to the summit.  There where few people which was good.  The entire day was very sunny and mild temperatures.  The higher I go the more windy it got.  At one point about 2 miles away from the top I did considered turning around because it was that windy.  But, like the other crazy people on the mountain that day I pressed on.  I made it to the faults top crossed the large snow and had some amazing views.  I would have liked to stay at the top longer but again it was to windy to really relax, but all the wind was worth the views.
