Ascent Trip ReportMy first hiking trip without the hiking club - this trip was just with my boyfriend. One thing I learned - hiking with a group insures you get an early start! We took our sweet time getting there, and ended up starting around 3pm. We took a lot of pictures on the way up as the clouds seemed to be putting on a show for us, and enjoyed a nice meal on a deserted peak. Even though it was one of the longest day's of the year, we made most of our descent in the darknessand made it back to the trailhead around 1030pm! It was quite the adventure!
