Comments
Comments: Quick hike today. Trail was dry down low, but as expected, it got wet up higher. Lots of slippery rocks, roots, and leaves; running water in many locations. Muddy sections, but most were hardening, not too messy. The muddiest sections were between the hut and summit, as expected. No views to be had today early, but it looks like it may have cleared around 2.

The hut was open (will stay open until 16th), and the soup smelled great, but unfortunately 10AM was too early for lunch. Only saw 9 others on the trails today.
