On Saturday a friend of the family (actually we consider her another daughter) and I did Ammo - Lakes of the Clouds - summit - Gulfside - Jewell. This was the perfect example of excellent weather when we started - right up to when we approached the summit. Then it closed in tight. We recorded a wind chill of 43 degrees and a maximum wind speed of 50 mph.
If you were prepared for a hike in the sun with nice weather it would have been fine till you were caught above tree line with the temperature going down - wind going up - and everything getting wet as you were in the clouds. We saw plenty of people who were not prepared well. One pair of woman went by with one saying "I am so cold".
As we headed down you would look down at your feet and the clouds were going by.
In spite of all that it was a great day - long - but very nice. Here are pictures from the hike
Here is a Conditions image as we were heading down the Jewell.
