Today was not my favorite hiking day. My day started out hot & sweaty which has been the case the past couple days. Two hours in, I ended up in the middle of a torrential thunderstorm that lasted for hours. I could barely see where I was going at times & the trail flooded quickly.
By the time I got into camp, the rain had stopped but the damage was done. I looked like a wet rat & all my gear was soaked. I have laid everything out & am patiently waiting for things to dry out.
It looks like it would have been a spectacular photo shoot day if the weather had been more accommodating. Might have to do this one again sometime to see what I missed & get those awesome photos.
