|Peak Summited||Mount Baden-Powell|
Perfect temperature and cloud cover made this steep trek up the mountain so enjoyable! It was in the 50s and cloudy most of the time, but the sun made a few appearances to light the way. I started at 10am, and was worried that my late start would mean a packed parking lot, but it was not full at all. The first two miles went very smoothly, but I got a little slower in the last half of the summit. I made a friend on the way down (Amanda), and we chatted about lots of things! Afterward, I got some In N Out because I couldn't get those yummy animal style fries out of my head while I was hiking. This was a great hike to test out some new backpacking boots I just bought! There was lots of residual snow on the trail which I didn't mind, but it did get a little slippery.
