Comments
Comments: Slight chill this morning at the beginning of the hike quickly turned humid with very gusty winds and near zero visibility on the ridge. The summit however was in and out of the clouds and between the gusts and the quick moving clouds it was quite a show of nature up there. The 3 old sections of trail taken are easy to follow and remain in pretty good shape.it was nice chatting briefly with the two hikers not far from Signal Ridge as well as the 3 i crossed paths with on the way down. quiet day on the trails met only 13 folks out enjoying this fine day
