Comments: A fine day in the forest this morning! I knew it would be a zoo so started early. Had plans of a much bigger day but South South Hancock kicked my butt last night. Trails are in fine shape and ripe for speed, aside from the one spot down low that is always a muddy mess. Only saw one person coming down on my way up - ha. Just wait. The low angle of the early morning sun afforded stunning views of multiple ranges even with the thick haze. Despite being able to make out any details of the peaks themselves, the sky looked like a painting of silhouettes of ranges as far as the eye could see. A true treat - later in the day they all just look obscured. On the way down, I lost count at 60 of how many I passed. I opted for several sections of abandoned versions of the trail to try and stem the feeling of being a salmon swimming upstream to my car. Several familiar faces out today. Did note a cairn/cross just off trail for the hiker that suffered a heart attack a few weeks ago and passed on.
