Ascent Trip Report

First 4k hike with Will, my 8year old son. Pretty wet day with light to moderate rain a good portion of the hike. We made it to summit in an average time. No views this day due to low cloud cover. Will was a little concerned about bears after he saw the sign in the parking lot. Thankfully no encounters. Due to the low clouds and mostly hiking below tree line it was hard for to gauge how the trail views would be on a nice day. We were lacking gloves so Will was hurting on the descent as the temps were cool. Definitely a good starter hike for him with moderate inclines in sections
