We ate lunch at the top, and right as we finished, it started to hail. Thankfully, the trees provided a good covering from that as we hurried back down. I felt reenergized, and so incredibly thankful that the way back was mostly downhill.
It was a fun hike, and I definitely wouldn't mind doing it again, if not only for that amazing view up at the top. I'm hoping that now that the spring weather seems to have started, we will have the opportunity for many more hikes, hopefully with less chance of rain and hail.
