Comments
Comments: Very damp today as the forecast never materialized the way it was supposed to. Cloudy with a light mist at times. Trail was wet with some of the ledges/rocks being very slippery. We came upon a good sized bull moose near the logging clear cut along the logging road. We watched him for about 10 minutes before he moved on. Lots of bear scat along the logging road as well. Not much in the way of views from either the ledges or the summit due to low clouds. I will have to return to get the views.
