Wanted to get a quick overnight in, I thought the rain clouds might make the Woodchute be a little less busy, maybe I was right, it was pretty sparsely populated in spite of the campground and neighboring sites all being full. The weather was perfect with enough rain and breeze to keep it cool without making it cold or soaking my gear. There were ample camping opportunities near the top, I was surprised there wasn't trash everywhere considering how close and accessible it is. I had a snack and went looking for the summit, which I think I found, but the views are better from almost every other part of the trail. I saw a few mule deer while I was getting ready for bed. The moonlight was so intense, I didn't use my headlamp at all. The bugs kept the white noise at just the right level, had a great night, then headed out a little after dawn. All in all, this was a good trip only 45 minutes from home, so I'll probably do it again sometime.
