The hike went pretty well and we arrived in the late afternoon at the Hawk Mountain Shelter but unfortunately it was already completely full.
It was still raining heavily so we didn't really want to put up our tent, luckily Christi came up with the idea to go under the shelter.

It wasn't uncomfortable and actually a lot warmer than supposed and feared.Read more
