Due to SIP, hadn't run or climbed a mountain since Antelope Canyon, AZ in March, so this was a tough one! I made it to the summit and back and lived to tell.  Interesting fact: They have been lighting the lighthouse every Sunday night and plan to continue as long as the pandemic lasts.  Normally, they only lit it to commemorate Pearl Harbor Day each year on 12/7.
