We'll close out this photo essay with another view as we stopped for a breather on the way down. The hike was good. The only problem (other than some traffic with other hikers on the trail) occurred in spts just after this picture was taken.
We had noticed the trail was wet in spots coming up. Going down, care needed to be taken to place a wet shoe on a slanted rock surface to avoid slip slidding away. We did some slip slidding but fortunately maintained our feet overall and got down safely.
A glorious day.
A wonderful view.
A worthy mountain for Marty's last on the 4000 foot list.
