Eight of us decided to hike, despite the light rain at the time, so we drove to the trailhead, in the fog and rain.  As we began hiking up the muddy trail the rain stopped (Yea!). 

Near the top, it seems someone had gone to a lot of effort to decommission the trail/road we needed to use.  Much soil and many downed trees were in our way.  However, we all persevered and made it to the top, where we found shelter from the very cold wind. 

Lunch turned out to be wonderful because of the sunshine and great views into the canyons beyond.  Pilot Rock seemed more like a ghost in the background and never made much of an appearance. 

After lunch, we headed down the road to our cars and some of us retired to Caldera Brewing for refreshments.  It was noted that a few hikers took home souvenirs from the forest for home decorations.  Although not the best start to a hike, it ended up being worth the effort in the end.
