It was a near perfect day for a hike. It was slightly overcast and cool. The only thing was that there was a passing electrical storm and standing at the top of a mountain is the worst place to be. It was kind of scary to see lightning strike smaller peaks a few miles from us. This hike was a little difficult because it required a little climbing and it was hard to follow. The trail was about 7-8 miles long and it took us around 7 hours to complete. We lost the trail right off the bat and it took us a lithe time to find where we were supposed to go. Along the way, we met up with a couple of military guys, who we never got their names. We decided to slow down our pace and stay with them. It worked out pretty good because we kept them going with our extra water and food and they had much better directions of the trail than us.
