Yesterday’s overcast sky descended on Mt. Le Conte in the night. I woke to some of the thickest fog I’d seen. With Le Conte’s spooky factor on level ten, I geared up and began hiking around camp. The relatively cool temperature felt incredible. I wandered about.
I began to think of how I would spend my last handful of days up top. My original plan to hike/ run all of the open trails providing access to the lodge was well on its way. Sunday’s hike along the Trillium Gap Trail was an enjoyable one. Today, would be one of my last forays on the Boulevard. Easily one of my all-time favorite trails, the seldom traveled ridge always provided that thing I look forward to - solitude. Tomorrow, I would aim to pay Rainbow Falls a final visit. With the Bullhead Trail closed, that would leave only the Alum Cave Trail for the final descent. Happy with the plan, I wandered on - still thinking about the details of the final days of this winter season.
