Write Up:
The weather forecast was predicting rain and thunderstorms for Saturday and we lost a lot of signed up attendees. However, the detailed breakdown indicated the storms with the approaching front would arrive around 4PM. Since we would be back to the cars around 3PM, it was decided to go and not spend a lot of time getting started. Morning weather was excellent: sunny and just warm enough to not get chilled standing around but not to hot for the climb. A passing dark could spit a couple of drops while we were on the summit but not enough to get anyone wet. The rain came a bit early, around 3PM so we spent the last 10 minutes of the hike walking in a gentle rain. It wasn't enough to bother putting on rain gear. Once at the cars, the storm broke and we were driving to the dinner spot in a heavy downpour. Many low cost, good tasting calories were consumed by all.
