Comments
Comments: Though the lot was full when I arrived, the trail was relatively quiet especially between Osceola and East Osceola. The rains caused lots of deep mud and standing water. Rocks were very slick in the ledgey section, and careful footing is needed in a few places. Day was beautiful and clear, so the views at Osceola summit were astounding. Only a few folks up there enjoying the view. I spent a long time gazing and dozing. Chimney was wet in places but was still fine to scale and was a fun diversion.
