Comments
Comments: Great day for a hike. I started later than I wanted to but still made it back just after the first few rumbles of thunder. The humidity made the rocks damp and some slippery. A rough hike with lots of ups and downs. Saw several people on the trail and many more at the top of the chairlift.
