Little Caesar dropped Pauli and I off at the Weverton parking lot and headed home for air conditioning…it was 9 AM and already almost 90 degrees! This section is also pretty easy, after you climb up to Weverton Heights! It wasn’t too bad, I had water and am in okay shape for climbing. I ran into more than a few unprepared hikers…not enough water, wearing cotton, etc. I feel for them, but at the same time I think, really? you thought you could hike 7 miles on a day with temps headed to 100 degrees with a little 12 ounce bottle of water? really????
Anyway, unprepared hikers aside…Everytime I hike by myself, the hike seems to take on its own theme. This time it was the fungi! Wow!
