We avoided the rain and had a very good hike. We did the usual outside circuit but then found a better way to complete the hike. Part way up Hog's Back we went right onto Caterpillar and then onto Zed. Hogs Back turns into a road whereas these are meandering trails with nice views.
During lunch Rich's Group came by and we socialized for a while. They had picked the same place to hike at the same time.
The foliage was in brilliant colors. A good day.
After the hike we did wine and cheese.
