Ascent Trip Report

Got a very early start this morning. I was planning on doing Carrigain, but the weather report convinced me to do something less view-some. Did the look clockwise hitting north peak first then south peak. Most of the hike up to north and across to south was done in heavy fog and showers. The trail between the peaks was spooky with the fog and a light breeze sending chills through me. Shortly after starting the descent the fog lifted and and even saw the sun peak out a few times. Met several people heading up while I was heading down. I guess my early morning exploits made some impressions. I met one hiker who told me I had woken him when I parked near him this morning. A group of guys said they heard me walk by their camp on my way up - I wear a bell when I hike alone, early, and with headphones on. Much easier hike than I was expecting.
