What a wonderful day for a hike, it was cool and overcast with a nice breeze. Hiked up to the N. Summit and took some pictures. I saw a pretty big rattlesnake on the way down and got some good shots. I had the whole place to myself again today and that was really nice. I agree that this hike is a humbling experience. It is very strenous, I drank 3 liters of water and 3 liters of gatorade. Wow, what a workout!
