Up to this day we never had a very rainy hike. Our luck changed about an hour after we began when we got caught in a downpour. It soon stopped but other showers followed. This was Anthony's first hike ever and I figured he would never want to go again. Suprisingly, he had a great time and is still hiking to this day.

During one particularly nasty downpour we all hid under a rock. None of us had the appropriate rain gear, but luckily it was a nice warm day.

The hike to the Hancock loop was mostly flat, but once we hit the loop it was a straight shot to the summit. When we arrived on the peak the clouds lifted enough for us to get some views.
