Comments
Comments: Great hiking conditions until late afternoon when the skies opened up and it started raining. The trail rapidly turned into mud at that point and traction became pretty dicey.

Spectacular views from the summit of Mount Hight. This summit does not get the attention that it deserves.

I would like to thank the women at the top of Carter Dome who was generous to give me some electrolyte packs. I experienced some major cramping for some unknown reason (dehydrated from the day before I think), and her generosity was a life saver. THANK YOU whoever you are. I will look to pay it forward someday.
