Comments
Comments: There was everything to like about this one. Heck, even the rain fell softly on my shoulders. Crap visibility with 50-60 MPH winds at the summit? Fantastic!

Trails were in fine shape. Bugs were pretty much non-existent.

It was a hell of a day out on the mountain. 10/10, would do again.
