|Lost and Found:
||Great day to finally finish hiking the Appalachia trailhead-based trails. Some clouds and chilly...was hoping for just a *little* global warming for the first day of summer :) to keep warm but a hat, gloves, and long pants had to work as backup :)|
Favorite trail of the day - Inlook - wow - such great views!!!
Lots of crowds at the summits and one or two people on each of the less-travelled trails. Quote I heard more than once from people heading up various steep sections: "I HATE THIS!" That seemed to go along with many pairs of people hiking with only one looking happy and the other looking miserable... seemed to be a pattern of readying the summer hiking legs.
A fine day with fine views - very fun!!!!
