Comments
Comments: A beat the heat hike to catch a sunset. A quick ascent got me to the top with plenty of time to spare. I chatted with one other also there for the sunset in addition to a few passers-by. The sunset itself was shaping up to be a good one until a line of distant clouds obscured the final drop. Uneventful hike out in the dark albeit pretty warm.
