Of course, on the day we planned for the hike, it was raining, misty and foggy. BUT, the rain thankfully stopped before we actually hit the trail and it was a really fun, mystical hike. The first half was almost entirely uphill and I felt it for three days after the hike. We opted not to do the entire circular route we had planned, since the views were limited to 2 feet in front of us, but it was good exercise and pretty nonetheless. Check it out:
