Even though almost all my hikes were solo – I seemed to always have several people that I would see throughout the hike. This time there seemed to be a lot. It is one of the things I like about hiking – people are friendly. The was a good hike until after the saddle on the way down – took my first and only fall on the six peak endeavor – mostly just embarrassing and some scrapped knees. Also very hot when I got to the parking lot.
