Wow, It Was Hot
About two weeks ago, we set the date for today's hike. It's understood that we go rain or shine, unless, of course, there are thunderstorms forecast.
Well, there was no rain in the forecast, but there was the prediction of hot, humid weather. So we drove up north and started the hike. Approximately 5 miles RT--fairly short for us, but steeper than we've done this year.
One of the things I have to say about today is, Wow it was hot!!! & humid!!! Did I mention that it was hot? The trail was pretty intense, but not the worst we've ever done.
It was pretty hazy, but practically all of Lake George is visible from this 2, 646 ft. high summit. The trailhead was part way up the mountain, so the walking ascent was only 1,046 ft. But really, it was hot!
I managed to find a rock to set my camera on so that we could take a group photo.

Unfortunately this tower was closed, so we weren't able to see the view from the top.
I think the only reason I hike with these ladies is because we stop for dinner someplace wonderful every time we finish a hike. This time we went to Panera and I got my favorite meal--Asian Sesame Chicken Salad and iced green tea. So, so yummy.
