POST #7:  Saturday October 3, 2020. Foggy & rain (drizzle) for the most part with sun coming out around noon (last quarter of my hike). 40-63F. Winds at 5-10mph. Dense fog for most of the hike kept my focus on the trail and its immediate surroundings. Rain the previous day and ongoing drizzle kept the air crispy and fresh. The oldest and continuously used trail in the US!
