Comments
Comments: Trails were in fine shape. Weather was amazing, and although the views from the top were abbreviated by trees and haze, they were still spectacular.

There was one instance where I nearly got struck by a falling tree limb. Details will be on my blog. But in the meantime, be careful out there. A tree falling in the forest without someone to hear may or may not make noise, but it still falls.

I'll be posting to my blog within the next 24 hours or so. Stay tuned.
