Comments
Comments: downsized hike a bit do to wind and rain predictions up north but this loop turned into a fine choice today..a little blustery at times but mostly sun with light winds and temps in the 40's..great fall hike with nice views into the Bowl especially. Many people out on the trails today which were in pretty good shape given the recent rains.

Nice day out with Alison and John and a pleasure to run into Sarah and Hannah along the ridge. Great day in the mountains
