Comments: After the Pemi Loop Thursday, and doing next to nothing Friday, I felt lazy, and decided to do a 10 mile "cooldown" hike. I hiked with Cynthia and her co-worker Nick, both working on their 4k's, and they provided limitless entertainment for me, bantering back and forth. We had fantastic views from Avalon and Field, things started to cloud in while on Willey, and by the time we got to Tom, the wind had picked up significantly, and clouds obscured the sun. Just after we got back to the Avalon junction, it started to sprinkle, and it was full on raining by the time we got back to the cars. A good, slower paced hike for my tired legs, and hurting ankle. Thanks you guys!
