I hiked the Granite Tors trail again yesterday. When I hiked/ran it five years ago, it was a dramatic mix of drizzle and sun. Yesterday was so sunny and warm I didn't carry a rain jacket. The blueberries are just about ripe, the salmonberries mostly mush, which is to say perfect. There were lots of hikers, a mother and young bull moose, and lots of bear sign on the trail (they're eating blueberries, too). I couldn't help but run the last few miles on weathered grey boardwalks that gave with each step.
