Weather was great. Sunny. In the trees it was a little cool, which was great given the long climb to the top. I didn't know FE had become somewhat of a vegetation afficiatato. He pointed out some Dragon's Mouth Orchid (correction) that were blooming all along the trail. We also saw some huge fungus, or fungi (not sure which is proper). There was also a patch of Merrells. Ahh, the things you can see as you slowing grind up the trail.
