Slippery Slopes

Tuesday, August 12, 2014

What goes up, must come down, but how we hike down a mountain is for us to decide. We slowly descended the slippery slope of Mt. Madison. It was a rainy Monday, and we had no desire to rush this trail, and fall.

The trails were quiet. We took the Air Line Trail down, and were rewarded with a cool breeze, and a few views. The start of the trail was not rewarding at all.

The hike down was much slower than our trek up. Slowly, the fog faded.

We continued our hike for another 3 hours, and were thankful for the the cool air and the views of the valley.
