Giant 6/26/10

So me and a friend of mine have been planning to do this hike for some time now and finally got around to it today after some careful planning. This is the first of 46 for both of us and now it's a race to see who gets 46 first. The morning started out really nice, some cloud cover, but sunny and pretty clear. We got on the trail finally around 9:30am with it still being nice, but by the time we got about 3/4 of the way up the wind picked up and it started raining. We finally got to the top and even though we couldn't see far because of cloud cover it was still amazing and something I am going to remember for the rest of my life. The trail was a bit more challenging than any of the other smaller mountains in the area that I have done, but it was nothing that I couldn't handle. All in all it was a great day, I enjoyed everything about this hike and look forward to doing my next high peak which is next Saturday(Cascade)

Congratulations on your first, but enjoy each trip - it is not a race.
