We hiked the short trail to the TOP top. THE summit. We signed the register and scrambled around on the rocks, taking photos.
After about 15 minutes, the clouds really started to roll in. Within minutes, we were totally immersed in a cloud. The view was vanishing. It was almost BETTER than the view, though -- to feel like you were inside a cloud on the peak of a huge mountain.
It sounds dumb, but I felt alive! I think this is when I realized that I really do love the mountains. I wouldn't have thought I'd love it here so much.
