|Trailhead at Dyer Gap|
|Grass of parnassus at Mill Branch, gone to seed.|
Thick, soupy fog and even more rain when we finally tucked our hammocks on a mid-elevation slope that seemed to be in the "wind shadow" of Big Frog. The wind howled through the tops of the trees but only occasionally made it down to rustle the tarps.
Can you guess what the next day brought? Yep, more rain, and tree foam! Which is why the moral of this story is pack your rain gear no matter what the forecast. I was glad I did.
