Comments
Comments: S was for smoky and sweltering today.

In addition to myself, it appeared everything else was also sweating profusely. These trails were damp and ledges and rocks were slick in spots from the high humidity. The smoke from the wildfires cut down on the views with distant peaks completely obscured. What a nice little trail system though -- soft pine needle footbed and nice ledge outlooks. I took a break on the summit of Pine for blueberries.

A very quiet area and no other humans sighted.
