Ascent Trip Report

Met probably the most unprepared couple I've ever run across on this hike. The couple was from NYC - we estimated they were in their mid-40s; they were hiking in wingtip office shoes and flat open toe dress sandals and dressed in city garb. We offered them water and snacks as we passed them on the ascent but they refused (they had absolutely nothing!). They finally made it to the top and we insisted they take water and a two apples. We struck out for the return loop. They're car sat alone at the trail head as we drove off at about 3:30 PM.
