Started at Silver Dollar Lakes TH, summer conditions. Hiked the broad E Ridge of Mt Wilcox, and dropped down to Murray Lake to return via the Silver Dollar Lakes trail. Summer conditions on the mountain, lots of wildflowers on the E Ridge, mostly soft tundra terrain. Summit & ridge down to Wilcox/Argentine saddle: easy talus slope. Mostly tundra upon descent to the lakes, and there were a couple small (melting fast) snowfields on Silver Dollar Lakes trail, as well as some muddy spots.
