The hike back up the mountain was extremely pleasant. The weather was somewhat cool and the rain held off. The lodge was socked in when we got to the top, but the clouds moved out and made way for blue skies. The high yesterday was 62. It was great seeing the rhododendron blooming at lower elevations. I love that time of the year when they line the trail and you are walking thru a canopy of rhodo.
