Comments: Mt Hale, North Twin.......attempt South Twin, Zealand Mt

Plan was loop hike, weather went south earlier than expected. Humid going up Hale, wet slippery rocks. Across River on North skies opened up. Off/on showers windy humid down low. Cooler with elevation. Running water on trail, slippery some rotten snow higher. I was getting chilled at summit, completely soaked. Called it as I was solo. Saw 7-8 still heading up. Gambled on a ride at trailhead. Didn’t want to do Hale again. Paid off!! Met Patrick & David in lot. Huge thank you to Patrick for ride back to car! Wouldn’t except money told me to pay it forward, that I will do.
