Comments
Comments: typical late start had me summiting field around 1..drizzle then a down pour on avalon trail above 3500 feet. started towards willey..pouring with some wind then a couple of distant rumblings then some Very close ones..erred on the side of caution and beat feet back over field where another group was turning back as well. rain stopped after awhile..very steamy on tom but the sun was out when back on avalon trail and it turned out to be a hot and sunny day once back in the notch. great to be out in the woods today
