The hike itself is always good. Somewhat of a challenge because of the boulders and rocks. The view from the top is great. Berries were done. Very few wildflowers. Some mushrooms- mostly Russulas. Few birds though the Varied Thrushes were a treat to see.
Final note of caution. Be careful out there. A boy fell from the tower. The papers today said he is recovering with non life threatening injuries. Good news especially for his dad who must have been going through the most difficult time in his life.
Amazing to watch the skill of the Search and Rescue crew. They are definitely heroes.
