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.
Hi Dave. Did you see our flag on Madison? Were you directly on the summit? We kept looking for a flag but didn’t see one, but big ‘ole Adams was in the clouds much of the day…
