Friday Fitness Hike

Linda, Bob, Mike, and I hiked 8.8 miles starting from the Horse Staging Area. We walked across the park road and then hiked the Long Loop in its entirety.

I took these first two photos prior to sunrise from the parking area:

We saw this rain shower moving in on the McDowells. We walked through a very light rain perhaps 20 minutes later. Shortly after that, the winds picked up. We were done with our hike by the time a really heavy storm swept through the park.
