Well, better late than never. I’d never hiked Adams before, and I chose to ascend via the King Ravine trail. What a hike! 😀 I had a great time, but it was pretty tough on my hiking partner. Our 8:30 start turned into a 9:00 start, and our 3.5 hour hike turned into 4.5 hours…by the time I reached the summit, it was just after 1:30 (Stephanie didn’t ascend the summit with me…by the time we’d reached the junction of King Ravine and Airline, she’d had enough and waited there for my return).
Once there, I raised my flag on an 8′ pole for about an hour. I received nothing but positive comments, and several people asked me to take their picture with it. It’s truly been an honor to be a part of this event…thanks to all who helped to make it possible.
