A small but resolute gang of all-weather hikers scaled the summit of the mighty Couching Lion on a very rainy day. We had the summit all to ourselves – naturally. We took the roundabout descent via the Alpine Trail, past the wreckage of the WWII plane for some photo ops. Beautiful day for admiring the many alpine waterfalls. As luck would have it, the sun came out just as we headed back home.

Participants – Lisa Backe, John Lamb, Linda Evans (leader)
