Nice early morning hike up to Goat Hill. I got started at 5am, it was relatively cool, but very humid. Pleasant walk up Pyramid, with a nice sunrise, and plenty of clouds. Millipedes everywhere!

It stayed cloudy all the way to Goat Hill, then the sun started peeking out, but the breeze kept it nice. Lots of flying insects (gnats? flying ants?) atop Goat Hill. Saw a few people back along National, including one character who tried to tell me that the millipedes were actually caterpillars and would turn into giant moths. I wasn't going to put much stock in whatever came out of the mouth of a 50ish year old guy with long, grape Koolaid dyed hair, and just as I was getting worried that I was going to have to turn into a trail-runner, I turned onto Pyramid and he stayed on National toward Telegraph Pass. Whew!

The rest of the hike down was quiet, but very muggy; and there were even more of those flying insects along the top of Pyramid--even more than Goat Hill. No snakes today, despite being told last night that it was "almost a certainty" I would see them this morning. Not very many people out this morning, even though it was beautiful out--clear fresh air, and everything smelled nice.
