Comments
Comments: Great hike today but tough up the six husbands trail. All fun though. Once on Jefferson I was treated to a great undercast to the west, north and some to the south. But I was in the sun all day :)
A bit windy at times and the crowds are settling down with cold weather setting in. Tricky descending the north side of Adams as the shaded areas had black ice on the rocks and I fell on my badonka donk. Other then that it was a great 18 mile day for me and it took my a little less then 8 hrs .
