Comments: The weather turned on us today. Clear skies turned to clouds, turned to drizzle. Both Liberty and Flume were mostly socked in. I did like what I saw at both summits. Both are rugged with a since of exposure.

I won't be doing Flume Slide Trail again. Not because it was really scary (I actually didn't find it scary at all), but because it's just a really long steep hike, with no views. I was expecting it to be more thrilling than it was. Nope. HoneyBee did not have fun as well.
