After the better part of two days of rain, the clouds finally cleared enough for us to trek to the summit and see what we'd been missing. What an amazing view! I was able to locate one of the reference marks (3, I believe?) in good shape, but didn't look for any of the others. Too distracted by the biting cold and the amazing scenery visible at 1 hour before sunset.

Found this a long time ago with my family. Took a long time to figure out how to log!

Wasn't even looking and came across this one.

Beautiful Day!
