below the Horn summit we sheltered in some trees until the heavy
rain passed. Once the sky brightened a bit we began our long hike
back to the car. At one point we had to get down the slippery
ladder that was left over from the fire tower that used to sit
on the mountain. This definitely helped us get passed a step
section of trail.
half way back to Saddleback we ran into a group of ladies section
hiking the AT. They asked us to inform the slowest member of their
group to turn around, but when we ran into her she wasn't that far
behind. In the end she decided to follow her friends.
of these days we will have to repeat this hike on a clear sunny
day to see the views we missed.
