Comments
Comments: Had everything but views and sun. But did have wind,rain,fog,flooding, a bear at trail head and lots of solitude. Did not encounter any humans until very end of descent. Intrepid soles were going up in heavy rain. Was soaked after heavy rain but subsided when we returned to trail head. Wouldn't have traded it for anything! Great day on the mountain with my pup.
