Comments
Comments: A quick afternoon hike hoping to beat the storms. The trail was dry, even though I got hit by a heavy downpour driving through Washington. Hazy views from the open, ledgy summit. Humidity was ridiculous. Lots of heavy thunderstorm activity well to the south, with loud thunder and visible lightning. Neat to see from a distance.
